On The Shot '09

The older I get, the more reluctant I am to believe in the notion that something as esoteric as a sporting event could be decided by mystical forces. You win some, you lose some: It all evens out in the end. Everything is life is 50-50, a friend often says. And even a moment that seemingly defies logic is, in fact, the product of several million hours of shooting drills and conditioning drills, the product of a superior genetic code, the product of maturity and musculature and skeletal structure...

But let us not kid ourselves. Cleveland has been due. For a long time. So perhaps this is what karma looks like.
