It's what you work for and grind for. Just to get out there and play the game and try to help your team to win. And in doing that, you just help yourself.
You define great players as guys that are out there grinding, battling every day with their team.
I have no political ax to grind; I just find it absurd that huge billion-dollar corporations can take over elections. I just find it insane that, for instance, we give tax breaks to people like myself making millions of dollars, while there're no tax breaks for working people. That, to me, is not a political issue, that's a life issue.
You constantly have to grind, work harder than anyone else.
At 'SNL,' I wrote political stuff, but I never felt the show should have an axe to grind. But when I left in '95, I could let my own beliefs out.
It doesn't matter if we get a hit, a walk, hit by pitch; just trying to grind out at-bats.
Guys want to go out here and get the job done. Guys want to fight. We're going to fight and grind every single pitch and try and do anything we can to help win games.
Training camp for me is a day-by-day thing. It's a grind. If you lose focus on what you're trying to work on, you won't be there mentally, and it'll be tough physically.
Hydroxycut keeps me going while on tour. It's a grind on the road, and I'm excited to be joining the team.
I do have great memories from when my pops got inducted. Obviously, knowing him and knowing how hard he worked in pro football for so long and what he sacrificed, the physical side of it, the injuries, and the grinding and now eight years into the NFL you know what hard work that is.
