Every sport has rules or does it?

This video is one of those instances where you can choose a pro or con argument. I will pick the pro argument.

What I admire is that he doesn’t stop – he keeps on going – no matter what.

That is what I choose to focus on – the perseverance and desire to win.*

* I am NOT advocating cheating and winning at “all costs”. I am mindful of the intellectual challenges of the contestants, but maybe, just maybe we can learn something useful here.

Like..

  • Don’t give up.
  • Do it your own way.
  • F_ _ _ the rules! Sometimes it’s the only way to get things done.
  • Give it your best shot.
  • Give 100% each and every time.
  • Leave it all out there, don’t hold anything back.

Redefining sports – Take 2!

I previously blogged about redefining sports with an endzone touchdown flip that has to be seen to be believed… Today’s blog post is similar, this time involving an ice hockey player who headed a pass like a soccer/football player.

What’s going on out there on the playing field?!?

Elite athletes are so gifted they are combining all kinds of skills and tricks maybe forgetting they have their cleats or skates on!

Fun stuff if you can do it!

Redefining Sports

Every once in a while an athlete does something out of the ordinary that begs the question… Will this change the sport?

I always wondered why this tactic wasn’t used before to SCORE touchdowns when the celebration AFTERWARDS showed the ability to jump this high…

Time will tell if this will become “business as usual” on the gridiron and maybe even rugby field…

Antimimeticisomorphism: An Ice Hockey Example

This blog celebrates sports and its athletes’ achievements. This short video is one of those examples where the laws of physics seem to be twisted into a knot. Watch how this 9-year old scores this goal. You’ll be rewinding it over and over again in amazement. I once played with someone who had a similar trick – unfortunately it was way before YouTube was around.

If you have a secret weapon like this – develop and nurture it. The unleash it when you need it most!

Psst! If anyone can teach me a similar shot like that in squash, I’ll pay big money to learn it!

Thank you to Andrew Powell from Montreal Canada for forwarding this to me.
