Second Place

Second Place

NHL Motivation Video
“I have been told that it is a good idea to start a speech with a joke. Well, do not get your hopes up. I am not here to tell jokes. I am here to pick a fight. I am here to pick a fight with second place. I have about as much patience for second place as I do for flies in my soup … but maybe you like flies in your soup … maybe you like second place … maybe you like the ‘you gave it your best, better luck next time’ malarkey that they spoon feed runner-ups. Let me put it another way: If you think second place is not such a bad deal ask Napoleon how he felt coming in second at Waterloo – not so good, not so good … and you can spare me the ‘it is not whether you win or lose, it is how you play the game’ bullshit. I can guarantee you whoever said that lost the game. The moral of the story: Come in first. Do you still want to hear a joke? Fine. Here is one for you. ‘Knock, knock.’ Who is there? ‘They guy who finished second.’ The guy who finished second who? Exactly.”
