Cheers to the mortals who dare to stand up to the gods. And I’ll buy the next round for the mortals that dunk on gods. For context, remember this dunk happened in the last minute of a Conference Finals game against the two-time reigning champions. Starks, whose journey from junior college, to being undrafted in 1988, to stints in the CBA and WBA, eventually became a starter and posterboy for the relentlessness and grit of those Pat Riley Era Knicks. We loved John because he always seemed to be impervious (or was it cognitive dissonance?) to the perception that he didn’t belong on the biggest stages of basketball. This was David with a slingshot. This was the Teen Wolf playing the championship game as Michael J Fox. This was Rocky getting up in the 14th round and asking Apollo to come and finish. The NBA in the 90s was THE Michael Jordan story. Bit players, disposable antagonists, and comic sidekicks served to fill out the frame of the next volume of VHS era MJ highlights. But on this night, 25 years-ago today, one of those villains-of-the-week went baseline and shook the gods- with his left hand. #neverstayinyourlane#godsandmortals#mountolympus#judgeme#changethenarrative#writeyourstory
While Zeus was playing grumpy god again today, I went back to day 1 entertainment: running around in his frontyard and playing catch-me-if-you-can with his thunderstorm 😒☈
There are several trail races around Mount Olympus, one of them "Rogkas", which is held every year in February. Followed its markers up and down the mountains accompanied by stray dog Jimbo 🐕, my best friend for a day.
Hoping for a happy Zeus tomorrow, so we'll get the chance to make it up Mount Olympus one last time before heading back home 🤞
Olympus! One of my favorite obstacles! It’s ok to be proud of your accomplishments and I was so proud after finishing the beast that day that tears fell from my eyes after crossing the finish line. #strength#pushharder#spartanrace#spartanbeast#olympus#mountolympus @sanchez_cat_party thanks for catching this on video and coming out to support me!
Just because you workout for 3+ hours doesn’t mean that you put in work. You probably took that long because you were bullshitting yourself and taking longer than needed rest. Get your ass in the gym and put in work. Turn off your phones and turn up the music and chase the gainzzzz
