Swami Beats 45+ National Champion
    #3928713 - 03/17/05 02:06 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Joe Hassey of Las Vegas wins 45+ National Racquetball Championship in Canoga Park for the third year.

Due to prior commitments I could not go, but played Joe in a "fun" game and beat him 15-6.

Not the right forum? If focus, discipline, training and Zen mindset are meaningless, then mods please move this.

BTW, am planning a BIG Swami 50th birthday bash in Vegas in late June. No S&P, just pure drunken, stoned debauchery and orgyism. All 21+ S&Pers are invited! Details to follow.

Well, this thread is more on-topic than the Banana Bread thread, at least. :stoned:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

to me the banana nut loaf will remain an unsolved mystery or our own time, so any thread that references it is at least more relevant to S&P than one deliberating 2012 and the unrolled mexican calendar.

bravo on your historic competition, and if I am lucky I may see you in vegas as you mark 50.

Swami:
Good job!!! Self discipline, training, and the ability to focus, are the basic skills one needs for any sort of success, whether it be a mental or physical endeavor.

heh, orgyism


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

I might actually take you up on that birthday party, Swami! A friend and I are planning a big road trip this summer and we will be driving from BC down to California so I'm sure we could take a detour at some point :wink:

This thread is as informative as this smiley :pimpslap:

I see no talk of zen.

What can you teach us about zen?

The Zen is in the clearing of the mind in focusing one's self. The discipline discussed here is probably beyond your understanding right now so don't sweat it.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

I covered this all in another thread.

The keys to winning:

1. Practice

2. Practice

3. Practice

4. Relax your mind and your muscles (even while putting out maximal effort). In other words, carry no more tension than you need to accomplish your goal; too little and you are being lazy; too much and you will tire easily and mishit your shots.

5. Visualize

6. Toss out unnecessary thoughts and distractions

7. Have faith in your abilities

8. Play one point at a time. Forget winning & losing and the score and the crowd and your opponent's attempts to intimidate or throw you off balance.

If you do all that, then you have played to the best of your ability no matter the outcome. I have lost matches where I felt good afterwards and won where I felt shitty because I made glaring errors.

Bottom line: the opponent and the game is just a measuring stick to see how much you have learned. In reality, you are truly only playing against yourself.

The same basics apply to most any competitive arena even outside of sports.
