More on the differences in the competitive nature of the sports one thing that I always found satisfying was recognizing how your body would move, sometimes reacting without your thinking, in basketball. Those were the best moves.
Once, playing with my friend Brian Brady, I found a zone is basketball, at an outdoor court in Blue Ash. Making consecutive shots from the foul line, three point, half court, then three-quarter court. All while being watched by two guys about to play us two-on-two. Fun stuff.
With golf, at one point, trying to recreate the reactionary environment, I insisted on chatter when I was swinging. Of course, thats a real no-no in the golf community. I found that it made me concentrate even more.
By the way, Dalai would never chatter – but, he enjoyed it, nevertheless.
