I was unsure of what forum to put this article in, so I put it here in hopes the mods will help me out and move it. Thanks Mods!
My first foray into some humor, article details some lessons I have learned from playing Madden.http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1890 ... ing-maddenPlaying it safe is always the best policy
Many of us would disagree. I canâ€™tâ€™ tell you how many times I have heard â€œtake a chance on something; it could change your life!â€ Very rarely is this true.
In Madden, you always take the 30 yard field goal on a fourth and ten from the opposing teamâ€™s 23 yard line, even though you have a tall wide receiver who could school that weak corner. Itâ€™s points on the board and it gives you momentum against your opponent.
In life it is the same way. Imagine you go to a restaurant, and while you already had a preconceived notion of what you were going to order you still give the menu a chance.
Then some magical dish catches your eye. It looks good, it has everything you like, and the waiter even says it is choice. What do you do? I always revert to my 30 yard field goal and go with what I already know is a good dish.
I have tried to go for it on fourth and ten; more often than not I end up regretting that decision. The food was terrible and I never eat there again and the waiter who gave me the â€œgood adviceâ€ gets zilch for his tip.
