“Let’s Play Two!”

Summary:
It is always difficult to figure out what influenced you as a child, but I commonly think back on this saying of baseball great Ernie Banks.  When a doubleheader was coming up, he said “It’s a great day for a ball game — let’s play two!”  This became a very well known phrase in baseball lingo. It always seemed to me like a very good attitude. If, ever in life, there was a chance to do more, or take on a new project, I would always think “Let’s Play Two!” Here is an earlier Robin Hanson post on stamina.
