It’s Tigers Opening Day in the D. The weather isn’t the greatest today, but there will still be hoards of fans downtown all day celebrating the official start of baseball season in Detroit.
In honor of Opening Day, I wanted to share this video from College Humor of a 5-year-old delivering Herb Brooks’ “Miracle Speech” speech before a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. This little guy puts a ton of passion into his speech. It’s impossible to watch this and not get that spine tingling feeling of excitement and inspiration.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the video:
“Great moments are born from great opportunity.”
“Tonight, we are the greatest baseball team in the world. You were born to be players. Every one of ya.”
