Tony Pierce reflecting on the rejection of his graduate school application and the termination of his employment at the E! Channel:
i am a chicago cub fan. i have dealt with rejection and misery and sadness my whole life. just the other day the cubs were up with two games left to play with wood and prior on the mound and they figured out a way to blow the lead and lose the playoffs to the team that ended up winning the world series. this is nothing compared to that.
