"Congratulation you guys, because of your efforts, we almost won again!" said coach Reid.
The players cheers and the quarterback named Rick said, "Yeah, although he lost the game, still we gave our opponent quite a scare!"
"I agree, we made it close against every single teams we have faced, in my book it's as good as winning and maybe even better, we learn something out of these games." said Jason, the defensive lineman.
Yeah, it's really amazing how they can still be celebrating when their record is 0-9 so far in the season just because all their losses are close.
Ronald Malone was a power forward for his high school basketball team who was also known for his high-motor efforts. Often times in the game he played, Ron would knock over the defenders and commit series of flagrant fouls. However, no one has ever held it against him because as long he tries hard, his dirty plays are understandable.
His favorite player is Rajon Rondo, especially after the 2009 Bulls/Celtics playoff series. Despite playing different position from his idol, Ron would still try to emulate the playing style Rondo has.
The power forward had a admirable work ethic as he would he the first to practice and the last to leave. Often times, Ron would spend hours after practice to review the game tapes in order to find the flaws in his playing skills so he can correct them. Despite the positive qualities, it still doesn't change the fact that he was a dirty player.
Unfortunately for Ron, he is a kind of person who wants to try new things. This type of curiosity led to him trying pot and everything went downhill since that fateful day...
Few days after getting cut from his team since the drug arrest, his parents went to comfort Ron by telling him that he's still a winner in their hearts and that's what matters in the end.
Few years later, Ron became a popular neighborhood pot dealer.
One day at the NFL combine, the scouts came to review college players that their teams might draft. One of the scouts who was reviewing one of the players became enamored and said, "I like this guy, I'm going to file a report to the team to draft this guy!"
The other scout turned to him and said, "Are you sure? He is said to he a high-motor player who is also injury prone an-"
"He's 'high-motor' and that means he tries hard, one hundred and ten percent effort and that's good enough for me!"
"Okay, take him, at least my team will have a chance to draft a better college prospect now that there's a slightly less competition to deal with."
The clueless scout then said, "Oh you're just jealous just because we'll get a hard worker who can make up for his lack of talents and arm size; Have fun with a highly talented player with slightly lower motor you loser!"
Decades after that day, people are still wondering why a no-talented high-motor player was drafted, thus setting the team back for the ensuing years.
