“If you think practice is boring, try sitting on the bench”

"If you think practice is boring, try sitting on the bench” is a motivational sports saying that has been printed on many images. The message is that players who don’t practice are usually the ones who are not playing in the real games.

The saying has been cited in print since at least 2007. Authorship is unknown.
