Day of the Overdog


The Time has Come to Knuckle Up

Six New Short Stories from the Author of Superbia

Life is gonna beat you senseless into the dirt and pile on like fat linebackers to keep you from ever getting up. That ain't cynicism. It's just true. Won't be a matter of what's fair or right, either.
Don't matter how rich you are, pretty you are, or how tough you had it growing up. Nobody cares. Nobody helps. Hard facts, Jack.
Everybody in this whole world gets it this way. Pushed. Tested. Held to the flames. Most pick up stakes and run home to Mama. It's real easy to fold when you're staring down the barrel of something scary enough to make your bowels turn to water. Quitting is easy.
It's how the Fat Cats stay in power. It's what they expect. The bullies, the landlords, the ass-kissing backstabbing middle-managers at whatever soul-destroying job you endure all day just to make ends meet. So sit there and obey. Shut up and lay down. Take a fall.
Let's Get it On

Some people taste canvas and get up. They take shots hard enough to collapse buildings and still come back swinging.
The ones nobody believes in. The ones who don't get it easy. You'd be dumb to bet against them.

Don't call them underdogs.
