It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Teddy Roosevelt’s The Man in the Arena, which was read aloud by Nats reserve player Mark DeRosa in the clubhouse before today’s Game 4

The Walkmen’s singer, Hamilton Leithauser, may wield an acoustic guitar at the Tiny Desk, but this is no awkward attempt to shoehorn booming rock anthems into arrangements that don’t suit them. It’s clear that these guys were making the Tiny Desk accommodate their sound rather than the other way around.

Reblogging for the Nats hat. Oh, and for The Walkmen.
