I figured that analogy would work best since I assume that's where most of you geniuses are probably employed. But you can make up your own scenario. Just think about your place of employment and ask yourself if you wouldn't find it the least bit pathetic if a guy started weeping as he was getting fired and as he left.
Ok, well your analogy was garbage. It paralleled what these guys do in no way other than the simple fact that it was their job.
If I worked for a place for 9 years as hard as Jake has worked, made as many friends doing it, met as many people, had as much fun, went through as much poo, saw as many people come and go, etc. etc. etc. then yes, I would tear up at the end.
It's pathetic to you, because you're an festering unsympathetic turd that has no respect for football players of Delhomme's character.
If you're so jealous about the money then why the fug do you even watch the games? All you see is a bunch of over-paid sissies running around.
