I am a diehard Vancouver Canucks fan.
Last year, we made a run to the Stanley Cup finals behind mercurial goaltender Roberto Luongo. As legend has it, Luongo would take walks down the Vancouver seawall with a hoodie and headphones before all home playoff games.
After cleaning out his locker following a first-round upset this year, Luongo revealed that he during these walks he listens to two main tracks: “Believe” by Eminem and a motivational speech titled “I am a Champion.” Intrigued, I decided to look up the latter and I was absolutely blown away. I watched it on Youtube about 15 minutes ago (11:30pm), and now I’m way too pumped up to go to sleep anytime soon.
I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t share this with you.
