Steelers' James Harrison Returns Sons' Participation Trophies
Remember that time your boss gave you a trophy just for coming into work? Yeah, me neither. Remember the time your mom and dad... or dads... or moms... gave you a trophy for doing your homework? Yeah, I'm drawing another blank, too. #childabuse
Well Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison (who knows a thing or two about excellence) also doesn't believe in trophy-giving just for showing up and doing what you were supposed to be doing in the first place. That bastard.
Harrison, a father who cares, came home to find his two sons were "awarded" with participation trophies and he took the occasion to tell the world that sometimes, giving your best, isn't good enough to get a pity trophy.
I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best...cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better...not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues

We have one thing to say to this:
A-freaking-men Mr. Harrison. See, we're living in a society full of whiners and entitled brats who've been inundated (and have sadly believed) their entire life with self-esteem propaganda, and "you're wonderful as you are," BS, while the same society belittles and badmouths people who've accomplished something in their life. The result has been a crapload of welfare-recipients with their hands out who think they deserve everything just for exchanging carbon dioxide for oxygen. Then they whine about global warming.
James Harrison doesn't want his sons to turn into wimpy, pathetic "men" who moan about body-shaming and point at people while crying, "IT'S NOT FAIR THEY HAVE THAT NICE CAR AND I DON'T," and turn into little mooches sucking at the teet of society. Harrison want's his sons to work hard and achieve. Like he has. What an @ssclown.
Harrison wants his sons to grow into men, to earn their accolades, to reach for greatness and excellence and then be rewarded, not for doing their best, but being BETTER than other people. Yes. Better. Than. Other. People. It's called competition, yo, and Harrison's bringing it back. Imagine what our society would be like with more dads like Harrison and fewer dads like the Obamacare pajama boy.
How long will it be before the leftists react with their typical fairness and equality and competition is bad bullsh!t? Yeah, it's already happening. #typical
Hey leftists, here's an imaginary trophy for having the finger dexterity to type drivel into a comment section. #ParticipationIsGoodEnough
