The Logical Progression

Days of Thunder
A Knight's Tale
Seabiscuit

A champion lies unrecognized in the mud, struggling to get out. The only thing that makes him a champion is the fact the he, himself, knows himself to be one. He is recognized by a wiser man, and is given that golden chance to reveal his true nature to the world.

It means everyone who knows himself to be a champion... is already one. The chance to be recognized is rare, but it can be made, if necessary. You can work with that horse, drive that car, joust that villain. And do it after sustaining a critical injury, no less. With no armor.

It means you can see in yourself the potential for greatness, even when no one else can... And it's there. Just like that. All you need is determination.

Seabiscuit was a great show. A great story. A great allegory. And I feel pretty good for having watched it.

Need to get up at 6am tomorrow, into work by 7. Great, huh? :) Off to bed I go.
