ahhhh, the old “he can’t be good, he’s obviously just lucky” excuse.
interesting that all the kings horses and all the kings men
with all their slide rules and hired guns and prognosticators and studies
still can’t produce better results than me
it reminds me of the Chi Chi Rodriguez line.
Old Chi Chi was playing golf and he hit a hole in one.
as he was walking to retrieve his ball, a member from the press ran onto the green to walk with him.
“Chi Chi, how did you do it?”
“You hit a hole-in-one, do you know how rare that is?”
“Well I was aiming at it, wasn’t I?”
“Yes, but would you consider what you just did… luck?”
“Amigo, I have noticed the more I practice, the luckier I get.”
I’m 51 and 7/8ths.
I’ve been practicing as long as some of my critics have been alive.
