Would You Have Fallen for it?

Check out this recent video of a middle school football game.

The video is a great example of lateral thinking (the ability to problem solve using logic/reasoning that is not immediately obvious and/or obtainable through the use of tradition step by step logic).  The coaches and players of the white/maroon team utilized lateral thinking to come up with a play that literally left their competition standing still.

Proof positive that is can pay off to think outside of the box!

This has been the skeptical samurai

Working to serve…

Through the process of inquiry…
