I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “he’s forgotten more than they’ve ever known” or something to that extent. I know I’ve said in jest to some poor freshman, “I’ve forgotten more about this game than you’ve ever learned.” It’s boastful, sure, but it also helps keep things in perspective. As I cut my teeth in the college lacrosse world, I was in awe of guys like Bill Tierney, Richie Moran, Don Leet, Jack Emmer, Jeff Long, and Paul Wehrum. It was easy to consider what they had “forgotten” – maybe, what, 10% of what they had accumulated in lacrosse experience and knowledge? – and know that that was still far beyond what little I knew . . .
