One of sledge hockey's great players, and a Canadian, Matt Cooke, lost his final battle with cancer. Matt refused to ever give up, as proven by making Sledge Team Canada, after loosing his leg to cancer. Matt was a able-bodied hockey player who refused to let the cancer win, by living his life, and using the game of sledge hockey to play the sport he loved.
Bro: "I can't do this any more, I'm lost my leg. I'll never play hockey again!"
To have your plans foiled by an inadvertent action you made.
As you attempt to make thousands of dollars by betting on a football game you know the outcome of, the squirrel, that you puked on, after just waking up from a drunken haze, in a hot tub, after travelling back in time, appears on the football field, and changes the outcome of the game.
Dude: "We didn't travel back in time so you could bet on football"
Bro: "But I know who wins"
Dude: "Go for it then!"
Dude: "How much did we make??"
Bro: "Nothing, I ended up squirrelling it"
