Thirteen years, five Pro Bowls, and two Super Bowl championships after going undrafted out of Kent State in the 2002 NFL Draft, and Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is still somehow chugging along collecting checks. How is this dude still in the league? HARD WORK, of course. Always EARNED, never given.
He just strikes me as the kind of guy who listens to Eric Thomas motivational speeches on loop during his workouts. “The day you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful!”
Harrison is now passing along his resentment for entitlement to his kids, who received participation trophies yesterday from Next Level Athletics. He was having none of it. Not in his house.
I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues
Boom! Roasted! Our boy from the top rope dropping the hammer on candy ass, trophy giving liberals with the knockout “sorry I’m not sorry” blow. I’m all in on the #HarrisonFamilyValues .
