- Andy Roddick
* People don't play sports because its fun. Ask any athlete, most of them hate it,
but they couldn't imagine their life with out it. Its part of them, the
love/hate relationship. Its what they live for. They live for the practices,
parties, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless pairs of different
types of shoes, water, Gatorade, & coaches you hate but appreciate. They
live for the way it feels when they beat the other team, and knowing those two
extra sprints they ran in practice were worth it. They live for the way they
become a family with their team, they live for the countless songs they sing in
their head while training all those hours. They live for the competition, they
live for the friends, the practices, the memories, the pain, its who they are.
