You know how Keely keeps posting links to those enlightening articles from erudite officiating magazines that she reads? Well, here's another article for you. It's about overcoming the fear of failure. But it's not from an officiating magazine. It's by Conan O'Brien. It's his Commencement (i.e. Graduation Day, for non-American readers) speech to the Havard Class of 2000. It's bloody funny and I wanted to bring it to your attention. It does have some semi-serious things to say about not being afraid to fail, so it does have (rather spurious) links to umpire development - honestly, it does - but I've mainly posted it because it's very, very funny. If a mod wants to move it somewhere else on the Forum then... yah, boo, sucks!!
