Al Pacino Inspirational Speech
Al Pacino Inspirational speech delivered during half time in the movie “Any Given Sunday” (2006). What was great about this speech? The enormous appeal that the coach makes on the team effort, his statement that they are “in Hell right now” (notice the We are in Hell right now). The choice to stay there and get the shit kicked out of them or the alternative to fight back. To actually climb out of hell. To climb one inch at a time.
He makes it personal, talks about his own mistakes. pissed away his money and blew away everybody that loved him. You only learn what you have until you lose it. the analogy between live and football, the statement that the margin for error is really small. The small steps you can make to get out of “hell”
Then he targets them as a group: “on this team we fight for that inch, on this team we tear ourselves and everyone else around us apart for that inch” “We claw with our fingernails for that inch”. Then adding that up to the finale. “When we add up all of those inches, that is going to make the fucking difference between winning and losing, between living and dying” “In any fight it is the guy who is willing to die who is going to win that inch”
Then starting to make an appeal to the team: “Now I can’t make you do it!” “You got to look at the guy next to you, look into his eyes, I think you going to see a guy who will go that inch with you, you are going to see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows that when it comes down to it. You are going to do the same thing” That is the definition of a team. “We heal now as a team, Or we will die as individuals”
The choiche. “What are you going to do??”
