Bill and Bruce

My mentioning former Senator Bill Bradley yesterday, led me to dig out something I had saved from an Esquire article dated 1993.  The article dealt with life lessons that various people had mastered and had proved useful to them over the course of their careers.  

Before his political career, Bradley excelled as a basketball player both in college (Princeton) and for 10 years professionally with the Knicks.

In the following he discusses how his peripheral vision on and off the basketball court served him well throughout his life experiences.
It reminded me however, of Bruce's admonition about life and how "there are things that'll knock you down you don't even see coming" (1:10 mark below.)  It is from a song on his "Divorce album" Tunnel of Love.  (Why do I think "When you're alone, you ain't nothing but alone" is such a profound statement?  Guess I am easily swayed eh?)
