One day, you realize how absurd your current mindset is, that this shit doesn't matter. You let your demons go, knowing that, perhaps, sharing your story can help some other chubby, goofy, socially-isolated, sensitive kid getting bulled in America who feels like no one in the world cares about him.

Seattle blew a 17-3 fourth quarter lead and were 99.9 percent likely to win after Steven Hauschka kicked a 28-yard field goal to give the Hawks a 20-12 lead with 1:04 left to play.
