Here is an argument for heightened focus in athletics, as depicted by a real incident in my life. (Thanks for capturing this, Anna.)
I was a camp counselor for three summers. It was the best time of my life. On Babooshka Monday (a holiday we invented), my friend Liz and I were singing Fiddler on the Roof out the door of the cabin.
1. The match begins.
2. The volley.
3. The distraction.
4. Struck in the face!
5. The apology hug.
Have a very nice day. Please remember to focus.
