Why do people love baseball? I love baseball because I can watch players that loaf all the time and don't care at all and even suck doing it. I like players with "large intestine," not heart.
The difference is that I only care about those who don't care for the game, or the ones who are too good for practice. I don't care about the ones who care enough to give the fans what they paid for, effort. No. Give me the guy who loafs and doesn't care, because those who do care sometimes rely on heart, but if you have a heart, you might not get ahead, and if you get ahead, you might win by a nose, and if you win by a nose, you can avoid defeat, and if you avoid defeat, you might get Coutlangus...
Chicks dig hustle and dirty uniforms. We have all heard that saying. Well, I dig the loafer who sucks at what he does. I love the players who don't care about what people think about them and just have the courage, the large intestine, to let it all hang out in the end and say to the fans, "Screw you. I know I suck, but I make more money than you can ever even dream of seeing, and I am really going to hurt your favorite ballclub." That's the power of large intestine for you. I want someone who will never risk injury and give his 20% and furthermore suck and hurt the team doing it. Is that too much to ask? Those that don't care will be forever admired by baseball fans like me. Baseball players who are great players, but who do care will be loved by millions. I guess those players would rather be loved by millions. But, could you imagine if those great players didn't care? They could singlehandedly sink an entire season for a team. How great they could be.
I will leave you with one final thought. The hustle players get by with the talent and hustle that God gave them, but it takes a truly great man to just skate by with the minimum and sow dissension in a clubhouse. Those are the true warriors get by with what God gave us all, large intestine.
