Good timing comes from "proper use of eyes," which is a patented phrase in my book. New umpires show their ragged edges and tense nerves more at the plate than on the the bases. Like Haydn's "Surprise Symphony," measured patience can become music to the listening ears of coaches, players, fans, admirers, and detractors.
If given a choice, I'd lay even money that women would elect to have babies about two days after finding out they've become pregnant. Procreation would be more fun, and production with a safe delivery would be less wearing. It wouldn't be very patient, however. No telling what would happen to the world population increases. And, for today, that's my theory about why gestation is more than a simple lesson in patience. Persistent patience precedes production.
Working the strike zone tool, an umpire can be ever so nattily dressed and composed. If his timing is not patient, he'll break the zone. No one will be happy! PUOE, PUOE, PUOE: "Proper use of eyes" is the method for reaching the nirvana of a patient presentation.
