Well. . .what’s the greatest speech you’ve ever heard
WHEN YOU’VE LOST?
The one that Coach Belisle gave last year after his Cumberland Americans from little Rhode Island, lost in the Little League World Series has to rank up there as one of the best. . .not just for 12-13 year olds. . .but for a bunch of
L O S E R S
like us. . .because, well, none of us are undefeated, but all of us are
U N D E F E A T A B L E
I really like that he Coach Belisle actually gathered his team around and made them look UP. . .look him in the eye, because he can’t talk to heads that are hanging. . .
I really like that Coach Belisle told them that they had their whole town, , the whole state, ESPN all jumping because they are fighters; they didn’t quit; that they played the game the right way: HARD
I really like that Coach Belisle talked straight to their hearts from his heart. . .
I really like that Coach Belisle told them, “I love you guys. I’m going to love you forever. You’ve given me the most precious moment of my athletic and coaching career. . .I need memories like this, I need kids like this. You’re all my boys. You’re the boys of Summer. . .
Remember the next time you open your mouth you can just say words or you can actually tell them what a heart shouts and mouths can’t begin to whisper. . .you can make another. . .MAKE a huge difference in another’s life. . .or
. . .or N O T. . . .
What do you say?
