The Biggest Laugh For The Day

A quote from an article written by Jim Cressman from the LFP on Mark Mancari, Mancari un-Locke's game:

"We have a motto in our room and that's 'Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work' and that's something we have.

Good one, eh? (Thanks StatsGuy.)

Okay . . . This post does sound a little harsh (right, you know who?), but I'm not maligning Mancari (I love him!), rather the idea that this team's motto is 'hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work.' I've blogged about this before - how they stop working or trying and it's very obvious to fans and very disappointing. To learn that this is what they have hanging in the dressing room, for inspiration? It's jarring. Especially jarring, on the heels of this past w/e's debacle.
