The zone

Postby Roy Janik » May 1st, 2012, 2:52 pm

Amazing things happen when you lose yourself in the moment... when your ego goes away, and you're just connected and reacting.

It doesn't matter if it's improv, music, or badminton...

(it really starts 30 seconds in):

I love how the crowd starts roaring and then basically applauds the moment they just witnessed and were a part of. At least in my own interpretation. Anyone know if this rally was the end of the match or whatever?

The teams were tied 1 game each and the score was 17 to 15 red in the lead after the point - games are to 21. Win by 2.

The score board is behind the players in red.

This guy + the announcers = amazing. He's in THE ZONE and I feel like the announcers are also in THE ZONE. They aren't thinking about what they're saying, they're just reacting to what they see. I would love to see golf announcers freak out like this.

You're saved! The quickest way out of the zone is to realize you're there.

I teared when the announcer said, er yelled, that he was on the ride of his lifetime.
