I'm mystified as to how the sign
It's not scraped up.
I don't follow professional sports much but occasionally a competitor
comes to my attention who I really admire, not just for the quality
of their play but for their character. If you asked me what
player (of any game) I'd most enjoy meeting now, I'd name ______, who:
- has an unassuming, gentle manner despite often
being considered the best player of his sport ever
- normally plays right handed but occasionally switches to left
- exhibits composure, never throws tantrums when he screws up
- is nicknamed "The Magician" for
executing technically difficult plays.
If you follow his sport you know who I have in mind.
It's a game I like playing but I can't say I follow the pros at it.
I only recently felt like watching a few matches on YouTube
and discovered who this guy was.
He's not a household name because it's not a big spectator sport.
growing a plant from seed I collected.
Two seeds out of about twenty sprouted and of
those two only one survived.
It's as if nature made the success rate low
to endear to us each plant that does grow.
