And demonstrate you got some. No, you can't pack and unpack real heart like the rest of the gear in your gearbag. Or show it by playing maybe 5 points in a match and then collapsing on the grass when it's over win or lose as if you've burned every ounce of energy in your body. Don't get me wrong, nothing wrong with bringing energy to the game but that ain't heart. That's just excess uncontrolled emotion like an old-fashioned tea kettle left on the boil steaming and whistling. Nobody needs heart to play the game. Playing is the fun part. Real heart is about your dedication to being the best you can be. Real heart is about the sacrifices you gladly make to reach your goals. Real heart is about the determination you show day in and day out, on the real grind. Real heart is about the effort you make to be the best player and teammate you can be. Real heart is about the hours and hours of practice you attack like a hungry pit bull. Real heart is about having the motivation to continually demand more and more of yourself. Real heart is about always being open to learn, to improve, burning with an unquenchable desire. Real heart is never satisfied with good enough. Real heart is who you are...not what you do. Get some.
