In my world we avoid the language of medical certainty like the plague. But in July 2014 Coach Randy didn't offer me a prognosis, he made me a promise:
R: I'm going to make an athlete out of you.
Me: (Internal) That's sweet but I don't believe you bc I don't believe anything you say. Not bc you're an idiot, or bc I'm mean, I just don't believe anything ANYONE says.
Ok, maybe I'm a litte mean.
