When people say: They/we wouldn’t have won without x…

but… he’s a professional athlete. His job is literally to contribute to winning a sports game…  Yeah, if the other team didn’t field a team at all, they definitely wouldn’t have won either…

There is plenty of discouraging news going around the NFL today, as more than 800 players were cut, placed on Injured Reserve(out for the year), or put on the PUP list(must miss a minimum of 6 games). That’s the bad news.
The good news? The inspirational story of New York Giants rookie, Mark Herzlich.
The 24 year old rookie linebacker was an All-American & the Defensive Player of the Year in 2008. He was a top 50 NFL prospect & potential 1st round pick. Despite a bright looking future,   he decided to come back for another season of college ball, Then, in the Spring of ‘09, tragedy struck. Herzlich was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing’s sarcoma. He then battled through the treatments & returned to play last year.
Despite his illness, it was thought that Herzlich would still get selected in the ‘11 NFL Draft. It didn’t happen. Then, because of the offseason lockout, he remained without a team for months. Finally the NFL returned, the Giants signed him, giving him a shot to make the club in Training Camp.
The N.Y. Giants finalized their 53-man roster, today, with Mark Herzlich a member of it. He beat yet another challenge put before him in life. Of course he did. That’s what he does. 

Sooooooo much respect for this man no matter how he plays on the field I will always have respect.

Oh my gosh, this is amazing<3

So apparently a player on the Canucks scored a Gordie Howe hat trick

So I’ve been on wikipedia looking at types of hat tricks. Some of my favorites: 

Mario Lemieux hat trick (1993: receiving radiation treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma the day of the game, and then scoring a goal and an assist that night against the Philadelphia Flyers.)

Hitting for the Cycle: (December 31, 1988: aka “five-goal hat trick”, “ultimate hat trick”, “quintella”, “Texas Hat Trick”, or “Lemieux Cycle.” scoring in all five possible game situations in one game, against the New Jersey Devils. scoringon a powerplayshort handed, even strength, penalty shot, and an empty net goal.

Rat trick: December 1995- Florida panthers Captain Scott Mellanby; a term dubbed by teammate John Vanbiesbrouck after ridding the locker room of an unwanted rat with his stick, and scoring a pair of goals later that night.

Maxim Lapierre of the Montreal Canadiens completed what was unofficially known as a Maxim Lapierre Hat Trick in 2010 by scoring one goal and serving two penalties for diving.

David Legwand completed what was unofficially known as a Legwand Hat Trick in 2009 by notching a goal, assist and becoming a father, all on the same day.

I will always reblog this. ALWAYS.

what they don&#8217;t tell you in Sunday school is that that fist bump is what created God, the Universe, and all life as we know it.
