Know What I Mean?

"In sport, a good opponent can bring out the best in a man; the existence of a close rival focuses attention on technique, piles on the pressure, and the constant threat of being beaten keeps ambition burning. In an ideal world, a man would choose his rival, selecting him as carefully as he would a friend but, in reality, circumstance makes the decision for him."

- from The Crossing by Kathy Watson


  1. I'm loving the old school picture of Allen and Dave "the man" Scott.

  2. Reminds me of "as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."

  3. Dave Scott's legs are scary muscular. Eew.
