“There’s still some stuff in the basement.”

From: Rocky Balboa (2008)

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Rocky Balboa

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the 2008 film Rocky Balboa. This is the sixth film in the Rocky series of movies. The movie has Rocky Balboa, in his mid-sixties, going up against Mason “The Line” Dixon, in a exhibition dream match. Still, Rocky takes the fight as seriously as when he was a championship boxer.

The film comes in the middle of the film. Rocky (played by Sylvester Stallone) talks to his brother-in-law, Paulie (played by Burt Young). Paulie questions Rocky’s motivation for the fight. Rocky then says the reason, which is the quote in question.

Geek wisdom: We do sometimes feel we need to prove ourselves. Not to others but to ourselves. You can use this as a motivator to push through the doubt in our minds and go for the things we want.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
