"Losing is a disease..." from "The Natural"
« Topic Start: April 25, 2013, 10:02:04 AM »

"We review...
all the fears and anxiety
...which are so
inherently symptomatic...
...of a losing team.
The mind is a strange thing, men.
We must begin by asking it...
..."What is losing?"

Losing is a disease...
...as contagious as polio.
Losing is a disease...
...as contagious as syphilis.
Losing is a disease...
...as contagious as bubonic plague...
... attacking one...
... but infecting all.
Ah, but curable.

Now, I want you to imagine...
...you are on a ship at sea...
...on a vast...
...calm ocean...
...gently rocking.
Gently rocking.
Gently rocking.
Gently rocking."

If losing is a disease, swagger and cocky confidence are the cures.

Ugh. Would it be better with her teeth in? Ugh.

If only it was Leo Mazzone style rocking and not Sling Blade type rocking.
