For all you Conan the Barbarian fans out there:
This is kind of an old story now (November 2012), but it just came my way, and I'm loving it.
Sam Gordon, girl football player, dominates the boys 9 year old division with 232 carries, 1911 rush yards, and 35 TDs. So funny. And awesome!
Apparently, the coaches hold a combine for all the kids before forming the league, and this girl won every speed and agility drill. I think if she was in Madden, she'd have 99 speed, 99 agility, 99 awareness, 99 carry, 99 toughness.
Being a professional musician, I can relate.
I play all percussion, piano and orchestral percussion. I was hired to my first post as the principal percussionist of a 70 piece symphony which was accompanying a 200 person choir and we were about to air live on national television in an hour. We do a rehearsal before we play, and I had everything ready to go, and I had nabbed this huge pair of 20" heavy crash cymbals that must be 30 years old.
In the first runthrough, the cymbal strap unraveled and the damn thing goes crashing down... The conductor just gives me this menacing look, and I'm just looking all innocent, like, "hi, how are you?" Needless to say, I spent a good 10 minutes tying and retying that damn thing before the cameras started rolling.
Now they make these steel balls that you insert into the strap end... Those are much better.
