"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." Leslie ... Read more

When my father passed away, he had an unopened package of Gold Toe socks. Instead of giving them to my brothers, I kept them for myself and wear them to bed during the winter months. They keep my feet nice and toasty. After the gym, I sto... Read more
