The Unauthorized Biography of Rosco P. Coltrane

When it's my moment in the sun, I won't forget that I am blessed, but every hero walks alone, thinking of more things to confess

What Makes You Great

My buddy Jesse called me last night from his new number in Grass Valley, California. He told me that he and his wife were about to move from Missoula, Montana. He told me that tomorrow morning he will being going to a Bible study at a gun range. He told me of his new Turkish rifle that he bought from the Bible study leader. He was excited to be moving. I could tell it in his voice.

I was telling him about something I did recently, and about how I felt that it was stupid, overstepped my bounds, and made quite a mistake. I told him how sometimes I just get to excited, go to quickly, and don't think things through enough.

He laughed and said, "That's how you become great, man, you hang your balls out there."

I laughed because that it one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies. And bonus points to you if you know what movie that is from.

And for some reason, it I felt a lot better.
