Plant Your Feet

on Wednesday, January 02, 2013 | Category: Sports

I was captured by the first three words of Lisa Osteen Comes’ post on her public Facebook page today 1/1/2013. Those words were, of course, a TRINSPIRATION™ phrase that got me thinking about my dad coaching me on my first basketball team in fifth grade. So what was the phrase? “Plant Your Feet.” This command has three pertinent meanings when preparing for a basketball game. In thinking about my dad’s coaching me and later his grandson, Dane Watts, he told us to plant our feet for the following reasons:

Build Your Game-The Mall Part 4
My hour at the mall found me leaving Sports Authority and heading to Champs.

Now he has graduated from Creighton University and has played professional basketball for four seasons in Germany. I’m ready for Golden State, the Clippers, or the Spurs to bring him back to the US and play in the NBA. Be on the lookout for Dane Watts.

Set the Pace-The Mall Part 3
As I continued to meander around the store, I saw Peyton Manning’s mug on a poster, surrounded by a group of children, with the TRINSPIRATION™ phrase, “Set the Pace.” As I mentioned in my post, “Build Your Arsenal,” all of these sports TRINSPIRATIONs will “preach.” The fact that they were advertising the Reebok Ziglite’s children’s shoe only reinforced the slogan, “Set the Pace.” Children have a tendency to start out too fast in races and become winded and many times don’t finish what they have started. This is not limited to athletic contests either. Haven’t we all made lofty New Year’s resolutions to lose those 20 pounds or learn to speak Spanish, only to run out of steam because we started too fast and didn’t set a realistic pace?
