Quicksand

[tweetmeme source=”sbindal” only_single=false]

Anyone remember this from The Replacements?

Shane Falco: You’re playing and you think everything is going fine. Then one thing goes wrong. And then another. And another. You try to fight back, but the harder you fight, the deeper you sink. Until you can’t move… you can’t breathe… because you’re in over your head. Like quicksand.

That’s quicksand.  It happens all the time, everywhere.  It’s really noticeable in sports, like football, because you’re thinking a mile a minute about a whole bunch of things.  Missing one piece of the action can make the difference between a successful hail mary pass to a 25 yd sack.
