Hello water damage Denver friends. This is not Jim Nance, but it is another beautiful, lovely, comforting, cathartic addiction, addiction, addiction, maybe an addiction as well. Edition of the Bigfoot podcast of gold. We’re to take things in a bit of a lighthearted direction today and intertwined. Once again, something that’s probably at the top of my list as far as enjoyment activities with sports. I’m going to try to tie it in to what we offer and what we deal with every single day. So just follow with me. Might not get it right off the bat. It might be a little confusing. Might be scratching your head for a few minutes. It’s okay. Hang in there. We’re going to ride this one out together. We’re going to make a nice smooth landing. You’ll get it just a little bit in about 10 minutes. Okay, so big sports fan, like I’ve mentioned that several times. Never really met a sport I didn’t like. Never really did. Rarely never really met a sport that I wasn’t able to at least compete decently at some better than others, some enough to play collegially but never felt like I’ve gotten out and done anything with respect to anything I’ve any sport and embarrassed myself. Definitely not saying that I dominate at everything but usually hold my own. So one thing I’ve noticed throughout my life and playing in some form or fashion competitive sports since I was probably about, I don’t know,
six years old, seven years old when I was a little kid, they didn’t have super early, they didn’t have soccer programs that you could play in when you were three, like they do these days. They didn’t have hockey programs. Not that I was allowed to play hockey because we couldn’t afford it, but now I have hockey programs that you could start when you were literally four years old like they do these days. Uh, they didn’t have, you know, flag football for three year old and touch football for 18 month olds. I don’t know. That’s probably a little bit, I’m exaggerating. But, um, anyways, today, you know, you can pretty much get a new, a kid into a sport literally right after they can walk. And I want to say probably the first league I was allowed to play in, um, at the center or something like that was maybe like six years old. I remember for sure I was, uh, playing football or baseball, I don’t know, five, six, seven years old, whatever. But the second I was allowed to play any sport I played it, I played in every league. My parents would let me, and it didn’t really matter what it was. I loved all sports equally. Um, when I was a little kid, came to kind of came to enjoy some more than others, but I would literally do whatever I was given the permission to do as far as which, which leagues I could play in.
I didn’t really ever play on any teams that dominated that. I can remember as a little kid in high school. Yeah. But especially the football teams that I played on. I dunno why. Um, but I’ve mostly found myself on teams that were pretty bad. And, um, so it didn’t get a taste of, of winning too much in football. I’m trying to remember back to the other sports that I played, but I guess as I got a little bit older, football was definitely what I loved to play more than anything else. There was one year, uh, towards the end of that particular league that we had a pretty, pretty decent squad. I don’t think we won the whole thing, but other than that, literally we won zero or one games every single year in football. Um,
Water Damage Denver | Offense and Defense Players
so let’s just, let’s just go off that. But it really applies to all sports. And what I’m getting at is when you have a weakness on a team, or even individually in a sport like tennis or something like that, where you’re playing against someone, golf doesn’t really, it’s not really something that you, I mean, yeah, you compete against other people, but you’re competing against yourself. You’re competing against the course. He just happened to get a score and you compare it to the person that you happened to be playing with that round or that tournament or whatever. But on a, in a team sport, you’re in just about every other set up, you are physically going against another individual or group, a group of individuals. And as a team you might have kind of the way you do things, you might have the plays that you run.
You might have kind of an a, a sense of what you’re decent at at, you know, maybe, maybe you’ve got a crazy fast running back that you want to give the ball to, you know, on a sweep every time and see if he can out outrun the defensive ends to that corner and turn the corner and burn down the sideline. You might have a quarterback with a big arm and a receiver that can fly down the sideline and maybe you can hook up for, you know, a bunch of passes. And so you might have a good sense of what you can do and what you Excel at. But there’s also the dynamic of what you’re going against, the environment that you’re playing in, the opposition that you’re facing and what does it present to you. And at that lower level when you’re playing in Peewee sports and things like that, there’s little to no such thing as scouting.
There’s little to no such thing as knowing before you get into a game what the other team is going to do, what they’re good at, what they’re bad at, that, so on and so forth. Now as you get in to maybe club sports or high school athletics, there’s going to probably be a scouting report. And for instance, I remember in baseball in high school where, you know, we knew which Petro pitcher we were facing, left handed, right handed, what, what sort of he he brought, um, how fast you through, you know, what kind of movement was on the ball, what he liked to try to use for his strikeout, pitch, whatever. Um, but there again, pretty pretty minor stuff. We’re not, we weren’t getting into anything incredibly advanced. We’re, it’s not like we’re sitting down for 90 minute film sessions on the opposing picture picture of the posing team. Same thing with basketball. When we were going up against a certain opponent, we knew which players they relied on most of the time what their strengths were, you know, kind of what we were looking to defend and you know, maybe some of those players that weren’t as good maybe um, you know, making a strategy to, you know, not pay as much attention to them as to the players that could potentially make life hard for us that night.
Didn’t play upper-level football, number one, I just didn’t grow to be a, uh, incredibly intimidating person. Physic wise also was never the fastest person in the world. So if you’re not big, if you’re not fast, you’re probably not going to have a lengthy football career. So I loved it while it lasted and that was about till I was 14. So that was the end of football for me from a competitive standpoint. But soccer and basketball and baseball were the sports that I was able to continue with and each of those sports allowed for what I’m talking about as I played in middle school, high school and college, all of those sports, all of those sports. There was a either before game strategy, end game strategy on what the other team brought to the table, what they were good at. But more importantly where their weaknesses were.
Illustration, soccer, especially in college, if there was, you know, you would think is a collegiate player, just about everybody on, on the team is going to be pretty decent. And that’s true for the most part. But there are, there’s kids just like, you know, at every level there’s men just like at every level that just don’t have the, the total package. And so certainly in being nowhere near professional as a collegiate athlete lead your team, you know, you’re definitely going to have athletes that have limitations to what they can do, what they can do. Well, especially on a soccer field, maybe not every single player is incredibly profession dribbling with their right foot in their left foot. So what do you do if they’re awful dribbling with their left foot, you force them to try to use that foot. You try to force them into their weakness.
You try to make them do what they don’t want to do and if they’re truly weak at it, it’s going to work to your favor as long as you execute properly. Same thing with basketball. Um, you can use it both as an offensive and a defensive strategy. If somebody is a horrible defender and they’re slow, you can beat them off the dribble pretty easily. If they can’t jump, you can use that to your advantage and try to get them down low in the paint and get up above them. If offensively they’re again kind of awful dribbling with their left hand, but they’re decent with their right, you want to force them to go left. It’s all things that you know, make sense in athletics and are pretty pretty standard. But how does that, how does that have anything to do with water damage Denver? Well, it has a ton to do with potential water damage and that is exactly what I’m getting at with respect to water is always going to be on the offensive. It’s going to be, it’s going to be the player or the team that is looking to exploit the weaknesses
in the opponent that they’re facing. And you can imagine water damaged Denver goes
to great levels if it’s not stopped, if there’s weaknesses, if there’s ways that it can can penetrate, if there’s ways that it can succeed, if there’s ways that it can disperse, that’s exactly what it wants to do. And this isn’t really a podcast, a water damage Denver podcast that, um, is trying to get you to do anything differently in your home. It’s trying to open up your eyes to make from a maybe a different perspective on how water works and how it’s always on the offensive and how it will always go wherever it possibly can go. So if it’s going to do it, it’s going to do it. If you’ve got a leaking pipe and you’re not home, it’s not like if you have your house configured in a certain way that you’re going to have zero water damage. Denver, it’s, you’re still going to have something significant.
But what we want to try to help all of our water dimmer, all of our water damage Denver friends understand, is that it’s, it’s not always nice and compact and right there as far as where the leak does, it’s, it’s damaged where the leak, uh, really comes to fruition as far as all, all of the water damage, damage number that occurs as a result of the failure. So once water is given the ability to go on the phone offensive, it will exploit every weakness, every little minute fracture of [inaudible] where it can possibly go. If there is a duct nearby, a hole, basically that, that water damage Denver can proceed to, then it will do that. And it will do a little lot. It will do it until you turn the water off and you no longer allow it to be on the offensive. The only way that you can really prevent and kind of contain this sort of thing is to be exactly that. Be preventative with respect to more outside type things with your gutters, with your downspouts, with your drainage. If all of those things are in check, if we have made her major rain or major moisture, you’re going to have little to no water damage Denver because you’ve put those procedures in place to divert the water away from your property and you shouldn’t have an issue. But if it’s interior, there’s very little you can do until you eliminate the source, which is what we always talk about with the first. The very first
thing to check off the list as we respond to any water damage Denver call is to find and eliminate the source. So tell you to do that. Water’s going to take the offensive, it’s going to explode everything. It’s going to find the weaknesses in your defense or your home, and it will dominate until you shut it off. And at that point you get to decide whether you win or lose. Probably going to still feel like you lose because there’s going to be a lot of water damage Denver, clean up, lots of structure to dry out and probably some hassle to go along with it.
