The Man in The Arena

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 02/12/2018
  • QIC: Zamboni
  • The PAX: The Boy Wonder, Osteen, Gambler, Full Monty, Dollar Bill, Kramer, Tinkle. Sienfeld, Skim, Airbags, Crash, Snookie, Peg, Outhouse, Mr. Clean, Bada Bing and BullWinkle (FNG)

Rain, rain go away, it’s Zamboni’s turn to do his first Q today.  The Buckets are full, the Cones are labelled, the Winkie is printed, and man…it’s still raining.  The 18 PAX didn’t seem to notice, they escaped the sack to post, they are the Men in the Arena.


Theodore Roosevelt 1910 – It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Final thought from Teddy R – “We can have no ’50-50′ allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all”
