Tim “Wild Thang” Lepard: The Greatest Speech on a Baseball Diamond

“For 33 years… I’ve rodeo’d. And in 1962 a little boy was born, and his dream and his goal… was to own a monkey.”

OK maybe Lou Gehrig’s Luckiest Man Speech was more inspirational. But, I love this video. From the Rams on the Dodge Ram pickup truck, to the cowboy monkeys riding dogs as horses, to Wild Thangs speech which touches upon; dreams and aspirations, owning monkeys, his wife who is the backbone of him, and the Gulf Oil Spill. All in front of a crowd in Illinois I believe.

I’m motivated. Off day for the Sox but we’ve got playoff hockey. B’s vs Caps tonight. Let’s get it.
