A. But we have entered a period of runaway Momentum, not only on TV but in the barrooms as well, which threatens the stability of all sports clich�s.
Q. How is that?
A. When Momentum is credited for all success on the field, we find a recession in team spirit, defense, pitching....
Q. Normally 75% of any game.
A. As any schoolchild knows. Plus conditioning, will to win, meeting the challenge, offense, heart, depth, rebounding, hitting, putting, being real physical, sprinting, serving, back-checking, jabbing and playing them one at a time.
Q. You mean...?
A. Yes, sad to say, but the more that speculators deal in Momentum, the less confidence fans will show in other clich�s.
Q. What about the turning point in the game?
A. With rampant Momentum, there can be no turning point, a loss for which we all pay dearly, fans and telecasters alike.
Q. Can we shore up the turning point in the game if we devalue Momentum?
