Default This could describe...

This could very well describe any player that stands up and gambles his own or put themselves in a tournament!

The Man in the Arena

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.

The man who is credited with this quote is the 26th President of USA, Teddy Roosevelt!

The galleries are full of critics. They play no ball, they fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they try nothing. Down in the arena are the doers. They make mistakes because they try many things. The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure. He is the one who never tries anything. He is the brake on the wheel of progress.

And yet it cannot truly be said he makes no mistakes because his biggest mistake is the very fact that he tries nothing, except to criticize those who do things. ~~ Medal of Honor Recipient General David Shoup
