I bring Theseus and the Minotaur up because today’s prompt asked me to name the professional athletes that I respect the most and why  and the answer short answer is I couldn’t think of a single one.

On the other hand, I like doing these prompts and when they challenge me  I get super creative. I think I did pretty good here.
