That's one thing you learn in sports. You don't give up; you fight to the finish.
Maybe because I am from a sports background, I don't give up easily. I am a fighter.
They read their sports pages, know their statistics and either root like hell or boo our butts off. I love it. Give me vocal fans, pro or con, over the tourist types who show up in Houston or Montreal and just sit there.
I grew up in a very strong, nuclear family. My father was a sportsman. He represented South Africa in a couple of sports, so he was a very positive person and someone who encouraged you to be your best and give your best with everything that you do.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
