I like almost every sports movie... but Rudy is my favorite of it's kind.
One of the things that I love about this movie is that it teaches the principle my daddy has always taught me.
It never hurts to ask. It never hurts to introduce yourself and let them know you're interested.
I watched Rudy this weekend, and I haven't watched it in a while. There was a scene that really stuck out to me.
Let me set you up for it: It's Rudy's last year... he's worked SO hard to even get into the school, much less the football team. It's the last game of his senior year and he's not on the list to dress for the game. His family has never believed that he was on the team because they couldn't see him come on the field. He was never allowed to dress. So he quit the team. Now.... watch this clip!

My favorite part is when he says, "You're going to walk out of here with a degree from the University of Notre Dame, in this lifetime you don't have to prove anything to anyone".... or he says something like that.
Wow. It's so powerful.
Here is what I took away-- Don't quit on your dreams. Do the best you can, recognize your achievements and be proud of them.
If you haven't ever seen Rudy, you should. You're guaranteed to fill a tissue, feel empowered, and witness one of the greatest inspirational stories of time.
