Hey Daunte, You Like Quotes? I Got A Quote For You....

Oh Daunte Culpepper, will you ever win? You were released today and like athletes before you, you had a quote prepared to describe how unfair this process has been and how you'll cope. Though to your credit you uniquely chose not to quote the Bible:

"As I was going through this process I heard about a quote by Gandhi that best expresses my thoughts about this victory: 'First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win,"' Culpepper, who serves as his own agent, said in an e-mail.
That's nice. Your plight does remind me a lot of Ghandi's. You know with the whole fighting for equality, truth and indepedence through non-violence and... right, you have nothing in common with Ghandi. But while we're tossing quotes around that somehow tangentially relate to your situation, let me offer one that may help you understand how you got into this situation in the first place. It's got a little to do with your representation (i.e. "you"):
A man who represents himself has a fool for a client.
Just chew on that one for awhile buddy. Maybe you want to stop reading about the Mahatma and start reading the want ads. Lord knows you've got some time on your hands.
