Advice to rip out your enemy’s heart! And arrive with violence!
I don’t usually let politics guide my minute to minute thinking, but I couldn’t avoid thinking as I watched this that this coach probably voted for Obama (95% chance), who absolutely doesn’t want to hold his team (our country) to this standard.
Do speeches like this work? On me, not at all. I wanted to win so badly that nothing coach would say would affect my effort. I prefer soft spoken coaches that teach. I hope this coach is normally like that.
And of course in golf, tennis and shooting – the major sports in my life (other than baseball), such ranting and raving would be counterproductive to the quiet mental focus needed to avoid unforced errors that dictate who wins or loses.
