As a competitive swimmer of the river of consciousness
I never understood the idea of a false start.
What do you mean I have to wait to compete?!
But now that I don't compete I get it:
I have to synchronize first
Before I competitively get out of synch.
Here's what I like about team sports:
You got somebody to share your losses with.
Here's what I don't like about team sports.
Your team gangs up on "others" like they are a single object.
That's not cool.
We are all plural.
We are all one.
We are all subject-object.
If we play politics as we play sports,
we'll all lose.
Empty your super-bowl-mind, sports-monk!
These black-and-white, red-blue dichotomous distinctions are all in your head!
Let's play united!
