Watch this White Sox fan conquer a 2,700-calorie helmet of ice cream

Our greatest achievements only come when we come face to face with our own limits and push through them to something we've never accomplished before.
During Sunday's game against the Rangers, a White Sox fan gazed into the belly of a 2,700-calorie, life-size helmet full of soft-serve ice cream and saw a worthy, yet vanquishable, adversary. No one said it would be easy, but he persisted and finished his voluminous bowl.

When we achieve something in this manner, it doesn't matter if anyone else sees it or is there to congratulate us. The personal satisfaction of a job well-done and obstacles overcome is enough to have made it -- the adversity, the pain, the days of indigestion -- all worth it.
