Anyhow, there's an incredible scene where the team leader -- Peter LaFleur played by Vince Vaughn -- decides to quit just before the final game, he doesn't even tell his team-mates, he just sits at the hotel bar.
That's when Lance Armstrong comes up to the bar to order some water, recognizes Peter and tells him he's been watching the Dodgeball games and that he's pulling for Peter's team -- and Peter tells Lance that he's decided to quit, and the following discussion takes place:
Is that great or what!
Lance Armstrong: Quit? You know, once I was thinking about quitting… when I was diagnosed with brain, lung, and testicular cancer – all at the same
But with the love and support of my friends and family, I got back on the bike and I won the Tour de France five times in a row.
But I’m sure you have a good reason to quit…
So, what are you dying from that’s keeping you from the finals?
Peter LaFleur: Right now, it feels a little bit like… shame.
Lance Armstrong: Well, I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough, they wouldn’t have anything to regret for the rest of their life.
But good luck to you, Peter. I’m sure this decision won’t haunt you forever.
So, print out Lance's words and the next time you feel like giving up, well, I'm sure that decision won't haunt you forever.
