Let's hug it out, Bitch!

Short, Sweat Pants Wearing, Chest Bearing, 20-Something Guy Answers Phone: "I am the captain of this team, and I’m not going to let everyone be embarrassed by you. Everyone on this team should be running less than a 4 minute mile. You’re the only one who hasn’t yet…That’s no excuse…You don’t have to be over your girlfriends all weekend. GET IT OFF YOURSELF DUDE! Get your ass to practice tomorrow morning by 4am or you are off the team!"
