Take your time, bro.

I love this video.  Check out the 2x4 nailed to the floor for the oche.  Check out the hair doos.  I love the grainy oldness of this video, and whats more the result.  Jocky Wilson, who was ranked #4 in the world at the time, was bested by an un-accoladed "abattoir worker" who took his sweet time.  Why was Jocky throwing so fast?  It was seriously rapid fire.  It's not a race, brah!

You don't get points for how quickly you get off the oche.  Take your time.  Zone in on your target.  Empty your mind.  I appreciate Terry Downs' style.
