I was thinking about how many times I've done something in an online game that I'd NEVER do in a "real" game where my job depended on the outcome. Then I realized, I prefer a sweaty finger, heart racing, adrenaline rush to winning in a blowout (unless I'm unleashing hell on purpose).
I do things like:
- Call timeouts in a close game to give my opponent another shot at winning the game.
- Punt on first down after a turnover with a lead of <3
Fact is... I'd rather play defense. And in those nailbiting games, I'd rather win with defense. But more than anything else, I need the EDGE that comes with close games...
I don't use my best plays more than 2-3 times a game for this very reason. Else it would be blowouts all day (not all in my favor I must add).
What about yall... You do anything that would be considered STUPID just to get your palms sweaty?
