Commonplace: Kieschnick

"Whatever you do, just make sure you throw every pitch with conviction."
—Brooks Kieschnick

(Kieschnick was the star pitcher and slugger at the University of Texas when I was an undergraduate there. He wasn't quite good enough as either a pitcher or a hitter to stick in a full-time role in the major leagues, but he has enjoyed some success in recent years as a combination reliever/pinch-hitter. Given this quotation above, which I took from a sports feature on him some time ago, I'd say he has his head on straight, too. How many of us fail to follow this advice in our day-to-day lives?)
