    Re: A true champion

    Some of the comments from the Youtube video:

    "I dont think this is inspiring at all. I wouldn't feel good about myself winning anything that was thrown. I guess it all has to do with how you're raised. Nothing was given to me in life. Success comes with hard work and FAILING!! I've lost in life many times and it only makes you stronger as a person. To me this is no lesson to teach a young man."
    "Disgusting!"

    I didn't think this would move me at all, but I was crying like a baby watching that video.
