Line(s) of the Day #TedLasso

You know, Rupert, guys have underestimated me my entire life. And for years, I never understood why. It used to really bother me. But then one day, I was driving my little boy to school and I saw this quote by Walt Whitman, and it was painted on the wall there. It said, “Be curious, not judgmental.” I like that.

So I get back in my car and I’m driving to work, and all of a sudden it hits me. All them fellas that used to belittle me, not a single one of them were curious. You know, they thought they had everything all figured out. So they judged everything, and they judged everyone. And I realized that their underestimating me… who I was had nothing to do with it. ‘Cause if they were curious, they would’ve asked questions.

Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) in the brilliant show Ted Lasso (2020-), which tells of a quaintly charming US sports coach who comes to a west London football team after being hired for the most unlikely of reasons.

      • Not sure what my favorite scene is. But I love the characters! They’re all so strong, even down to those in small roles. Can’t believe I like a β€œfootball” show. πŸ™‚

  1. haven’t seen the show πŸ™‚ but I love the line… btw, I’m adding you to my next chapter of ‘Harmless Bullet’ πŸ™‚ – get ready to fight with Bullet over the photo of Margaret Thatcher πŸ˜‰πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β˜οΈ
