I really wanted to see the movie. However, the story was sad. It just goes to show that you can't celebrate to early. It's a shame Leon had to learn it the extremely hard way.

Did it make anyone else mad that the clip didn't work? I guess there is a lesson that was tought though...burn it to a disk when you deside to show it to the class!!

Leon, Leon, Leon, keep your hands at your side until the ride is over. Speaking of rides, he will never be able to escape that so-near-touchdown. I bet Buffalo was pleased though. Just goes to show ya, the plays not over until you pass that white line. Hey Leon, it's the second to last solid line at the end of the field, I know there two ends of the field, but ya got a fifty, fifty chance.

I can't believe that Leon became that cocky and didn't realize what he was doing. One reason to not be boastful or think your too good, it always ends you up in shame.

I really wanted to see that blasted clip! Who pulled it from youtube, the NFL? Well the pic's gave the general idea...along with Mr. Peters acting it out with Beth's paper!

Wait to celebrate when the rides over! Boy, that was just tempting the results. How could he do that? I love it when Mr. Peters acts out the stories. I think that was a really good compromise for the clip.

Uh, this clip just got deleted i guess. Although I haven't seen it, im guessing its similiar to the clip with lindsay?

Why'd they take it off?!?!
I think it's funny people really thought Leon Lett was coming in!
But even though I'm not famous and people don't see my mistakes I'm not going to celebrate too early- ever!

I remember this video from last quarter, luckily I go to see it and I can't believe he would do that... it's a really good example to use for this class and every other class for that matter because I know most people get that feeling towards the end of the quarter that they are done, when really they are not. You get relaxed and sometimes the very end of the quarter determines whether you get that A, B or even that C....whether you get that + or that -.
You celebrate after it is over, not before... leon is a very good example why you shouldn't celebrate before you get the prize.

I think its stupid that this video was deleted! I mean gosh, so many people can learn life lessons from others stupid mistakes! :)(also i think it just would have been funny to watch!)

Leon's story was very unfortunate but it worked well with Mr. Peters analogy. Everyone can learn from this story and see that you got to fight until the end and dont celebrate too early.

All that work for nothing. I can’t believe he started dancing at the 10 yard line! At least he was able to show us what not to do.
