Muscle memory is a amazing thing. When constant practice and mastery of a technique come together with opportunity the automatic like reaction is a remarkable thing to watch. I've had it happen in several situations and could not explain how I did it but it sort of happened. Funny thing was I practiced it many times and when the opportunity presented it felt normal and easy to do. Without the practice and the feel of the action I know I would not have had the confidence or would have had to think it through and the time taken to think it through obviates the opportunity to do it. It's a bang - bang action and when it happens it can be a beautiful thing. Ask Mrs. Spackler.......

Oh you dirty minded boys.......I was referring to her amusement of my operation of our bolt action Winchester 22 when we shoot vermin in the back yard. She loves watching me operate the bolt. I'm so automatic in doing it - it makes her giggle which can be distracting although I'm in concentration mode and don't notice...too much. Actually she shakes while laughing which makes aiming a bit difficult at times.

Now, aren't you ashamed of yourselves, a little tiny bit?

Of course that is not the only action she finds amazing as my muscle memory knows no bounds......but I would be indescrete to delve into those areas of skill.

Actually I think we all would have been way more impressed if it was the other thing - I think Carl should of just let us believe what we wanted to believe - probably would have resulted in free drinks if you ever got together with any board members.

Big win for the men's hoops team last night over Maryland following a couple of major disappointments against Indiana and Rutgers. IMO, all part of a young team experiencing some growing pains.

Anyone watch the wrestlers last weekend GRIND tOSU into the mat in Columbus? So sweet, especially Bo Nickal's revenge domination of the guy that beat him in the NCAA finals last year.
