Don't Overlook the Obvious

One night in New York City, a steel plate covering a deep pot hole became dislodged. Every time a car passed over it, the plate reverberated and clattered, interfering with sleep and even conversation.

Finally, at about 11 p.m., someone on the block called the police. Two radio cars arrived with five policemen. They all pushed and pulled at the steel plate, trying to get it back where it belonged. Unfortunately, nothing worked, and every time a car passed, the policemen would draw back, covering their ears with their hands because of the noise.

Finally, a woman in a long pink dress carrying an old kerosene lamp emerged from an apartment house. She went to a wooden sawhorse that a builder had left on the street, picked it up and marched to the pot hole. Silently, she hung the lantern on the sawhorse and placed it over the pot hole. The next car to come along swerved around the sawhorse, of course, and so did all the other cars after that. Then the woman in her pink dress went back to her apartment and the policemen, recognizing a good thing when they saw it, left, too.

This story by John Corry in The New York Times points out what should have been obvious. The solution was within sight, yet no one saw the "obvious," and five policemen were engaged in trying to solve the simple problem. Isn't that the way it is so many times in life? Things might look really dark, and yet the solutions to everyday problems of life are almost always right before us -- if we will calmly look at all the possibilities.

Even the smallest schools had a place in the event and a chance to win it all. First step were the sectionals, which fed into the regionals, the semi-state, state finals (final four)

I always wondered why there was so much enthusiasm for local teams, particularly those with no chance to advance. Losing so often would be a significant discouragement but that wasn’t the way it worked. Although every round, half the participants were losers, also the same number were winners and winners at the lowest level were proud to have a notch on their belt and the losers would look forward to trying to figure out how to get on that same page.

So there was significant motivation to be hopeful for this year and next and try to figure out how to be better as a team, with all the surrounding efforts.

In that decade, high school football and basketball dominated small and big Indiana towns because there was live local radio broadcasting the events, and many fans were faithful going to home games each Friday night. Players were always interested in who had their picture in the "paper" and usually weekend shopping was done on Saturday since many stores were not open Sundays.
