I thouroughly enjoyed what Alex B wrote about in his article, "swish." I was struck by the message of how enough practice will help anyone in pressure situations, such as an important basketball game. When one is willing to put effort into something they will see the results of their hard work when it really counts. Not only was there a motivating message in his article, but Alex uses repetition and causes the reader to have anxiety in order to keep the reader engrossed in the article. Thanks for your article and helping me to realize that with practice comes performance when it really counts.
