Ten Percent

My coaches used to say
football is ninety percent mental
and ten percent physical.

I was a junior in high school
when I realized
I wasn’t going to approach
six feet tall
and this would adversely effect
my aspirations to play middle-linebacker
for the Washington Huskies.

Not long after this realization
I came to the conclusion
ninety percent of what coaches say
is bull shit.
