“Wayne Douglas Gretzky CC (/ˈɡrɛtski/; born January 26, 1961) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player and former head coach. He played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for four teams from 1979 to 1999. Nicknamed "the Great One", he has been called the greatest hockey player ever by many sportswriters, players, the NHL itself, and by The Hockey News, based on extensive surveys of hockey writers, ex-players, general managers and coaches. Gretzky is the leading goal scorer, assist producer and point scorer in NHL history, and has more assists in his career than any other player scored total points. He is the only NHL player to total over 200 points in one season, a feat he accomplished four times. In addition, Gretzky tallied over 100 points in 16 professional seasons, 14 of them consecutive. At the time of his retirement in 1999, he held 61 NHL records: 40 regular season records, 15 playoff records, and 6 All-Star records.” ~ Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Gretzky

I think you've explained it very well, Ron. I was thinking along the lines of "He who hesitates is lost."

bear with me because i don't know sports.
a ball is thrown at you, you don't swing at it, it flies past you, you missed it.

you do not swing at the next 9 balls. they fly past you. the balls were in play but you didn't try to hit them.

what percentage of the balls did you not miss?

He might have been the best ice hockey player ever, but he was no philosopher! I think what he was trying to say was - if you don;t take a chance you won't score, whereas what he has said is 100% of doing nothing is nothing!

Michael Scott had this quote on his wall - it might have been the Michael Scott Paper Company episodes (The Office)

Interesting response to this one, Bill. I was thinking, without a doubt.
But it has me wondering where the gap in the answers is? Perhaps perspective but I have no clue.

This is debatable to me!

Are you sure of that?
