I can’t quite explain why practice on Christmas morning is fun, but here’s my best guess. Looking each other in the eye in the midst of a hard drill and without saying a word, knowing that what you’re thinking is exactly what they’re thinking: "Are we really doing this right now? Are we seriously spending 10 minutes on close-outs on Christmas morning? This is nuts. But so are you. And you’re the reason why I’m gonna go all out right now. Because to get to where we need to be, you need me to scrap like my hair’s on fire, and I need the same from you. So yes, we are doing this. So yes, this is worth it. And no, I wouldn’t wanna be anywhere else right now, and I can tell you wouldn’t either. So let;s get after it. And hope coach doesn’t ask about the orange peels."
