Adam: I would sit on the bench every game and just stew. Coach wouldn't play me. I hated it. I wanted to quit that team so bad. I remember I went home and I told my mom I was gonna quit. She said, "Absolutely not. Absolutely not, Vic. You made a commitment. You better stick with it."
Chaplain: You know, she sounds like an extraordinary woman.
Adam: Oh, she was. She was. Tough as nails. But she had a kind of... a kind of gentle, soft spoken quality all the time. Like... velvet over steel or something, you know? I guess if I hadn't listened to her... I never would've got to experience that. I used to think that day that she died was the worst day of my life. As it turns out, every day thereafter is just getting worse and worse. I had my whole life ahead of me. Now look at me.
