I’ve been watching a lot of World Cup soccer.
Whenever there is a close-call involving contact between two players, both players roll around on the ground holding their shin. The guy who does the most convincing job of this gets the call.
This bothers some people.
I find it inspirational.
So yesterday, when my wife Staci told me I was supposed to pick up our son Tom from basketball practice, I told her she should have mentioned it to me earlier. She says she did, but I wasn’t listening. I said she never told me. She said I never listen.
So I dropped to the kitchen floor and started rolling around holding my shin.
She said, “You are so strange,” and left the kitchen.
Maybe it only works in soccer.
