Dumb Questions

Read answers to some of the top questions...

Here are some of the questions that my readers have been asking lately.  Some of my readers e-mail me saying, “I have a dumb question…”  Actually, these are NOT dumb questions.  These are questions that MANY table tennis players in the US are asking.  So, I decided to answer 10 of the questions today…
1.       Defaults
Question:  If I’m too tired to play a match and default, will I lose rating points?
Answer:  If you default before the match has started, you will not lose rating points. 

Reverse Preparation

Prepare Differently This Season

Many table tennis athletes begin the season with refining their basic technique and working on developing a solid base for footwork and consistency with many systematic drills.  As they get closer to their peak tournament, they then begin a more tactical approach.  When they know which exact opponents they will compete against, then they begin specific tactical preparation for that exact opponent. 
This is good, but I’m going to propose a slightly different approach for you…

Story of 2 Debtors

Bible Passage From Luke 7:41-43

Luke 7: 41-43
Jesus said, "There was a certain creditor who had two debtors.  One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.  And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both.  Tell Me. thereforeh, which of them will love him more?"  Simon answered and said, "I suppose the one whom he forgave more."
