    Bench warmers and bat boys get World Series rings. Only the best of the best from the country get a chance at a gold medal.

    My name on the Stanley Cup. Hardest championship to win and it's forever.

    Ping Pong and Fencing athletes receive gold medals. Give me a Stanley Cup or Lombardi.

    Depends what sport you're talking about. I hate to break it to shitheads like Carmelo Anthony, but no one gives a shit about your gold medals. Try making it to an NBA final and then I'll pay attention

    Would you want to be Bruce Jenner and get all the glory if you knew what was coming? Is fame and glory in the prime of your life worth ridicule and embarrassment at the end?

    If I get a World Series Ring it will be for playing centerfield, not for being the bat boy.

    The Bulls' Jack Haley averaged like 2 points a game and has a ring. I respect a ping pong gold medal - a true *world* championship - a lot more.

    Fucking Payton Water headed Manning should show up to Von Miller And DeMarcus Murrays houses in a blonde wig,
    Lipstick with a jar of grape jelly in one hand and maple syrup
    in the other for the free ride he got last season......That fuck shouldn't have been allowed on stage when they presented
    the Lombardi to the Broncos.......

    i'd like to get one for being the middle relief guy
    maybe the long relief type

    you're part of the team and all that
    but you spend most of your time fucking around


    maybe the setup man
    sure you play a lot and have a lot of pressure
    but if you fuck it up they just shrug and say that's why he's the setup man and not the closer
