By the time those girls got to high school. they didn't care about how many points they scored. They cared about taking good shots and hitting a good percentage. Hitting 2 of 4 was better than hitting 2 of 10.

In high school, they played with girls who didn't care about anything but how many points they scored. As long as they played well, they didn't care about the outcome of the game. It was a thoroughly miserable experience for the rest of the team.
The pessimist may be right in the long run, but the optimist has a better time during the trip.
