Do Lefties Have an Advantage in Sports? It Depends

Probably in soccer, since there is an advantage to their forte of flopping on the ground and pretending they've been victimized. Not in real sports though.

henry

Geez TM, its now like the Left has anything else to crow about over recorder history. They suck at running things. SO they steal the afterglow from left handed ping pong players? Real men and women play beer pong.

What about curling?

Miss M., I am so sorry to hear about your son's accident and his alcohol problems. I thank God no one was seriously hurt, and I pray that your son will now be able to get the help he needs, and that he will find within himself the fortitude to take advantage of it.

Conyers’ Hometown Paper Urges Him To Step Down

The Detroit-Free Press editorial argued that while Conyers is a “hero of the civil rights,” he needs to resign due to reports of his alleged firing of a woman who rebuffed his sexual advances.

“John Conyers Jr. must go — after 53 years in Congress, after a stellar career of fighting for equality, after contributing so much to southeast Michigan and the nation,” the editorial board for the paper wrote. “It’s a tragic end to his public career. But it’s the appropriate consequence for the stunning subterfuge his office has indulged here, and a needed warning to other members of Congress that this can never be tolerated.”

Well for 90% of recorded human history the Left hand has been the principle turd wiper, so its got that deft skill going for it.

I'm a lefty and have found that playing golf right handed is an advantage as the swing is advantaged by my dominant arm on the pull down. I putt lefty, though.

Bowl lefty, switch hit baseball hitting/ field lefty, tennis lefty, kickball/soccer lefty, darts lefty...

Conyers was my rep growing up, so I take particular pleasure in his downfall.

Rocco

Although Belichick claims it doesn't matter, he's had left footed punters from the beginning.

Clarice

MM. You are in my thoughts today. Of course we'll go fund you.

henry

Rocco, opposite spin on the ball should affect the bounce. Does the bounce matter on a return? (Soccer, can kick and spin with either foot for that reason at times).

Jack is Back!

A dear friend of mine passed away this year. He and I worked together at Big Construction. He was a guy from New Brunswick, Canada who took his engineering degrees at Georgia Tech. Not only was he a "hell of an engineer" but also a top notch tennis player.

He was also ambidexterous and could serve with either hand and hit his ground strokes with either hand. Very confusing when facing him in, lets say, deuce court because depending on whether you have a weak back hand or a lousy forehand, he can adjust the serve.

One year in our tennis league he tore his rotator cuff at work. As defending champion everyone was relieved he would be out for at least a year. Nope. He just played with his better arm and won the league again. I always thought he had a stronger left arm stroke and serve but he didn't think there was any difference.

daddy on the Left Bank

Righty wiper, daddy. :)

I mIght be one also Steph, but I wouldnt mention it in polite company.
How Did The Ancients Wipe Their Own Ass?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, I might have to take you guys up on a go fund thing.

The insurance company told me they are pretty sure from the accident report that the car is totaled. (Air bags deployed, collapsed right front wheel). It's a 2001 Jeep, so I doubt I get much from State Farm.

I will talk to Porchlight after the holidays since I have to busy myself getting a new email address. My ex-husband didn't pay the last couple of bills to Comcast and when I forgot my password they wouldn't give me a new one and locked my account until I paid them, which of course, I am not able to do.

My sister will take me out to the tow lot on Friday so I can unload the car. State Farm said they would tow it to the salvage lot on Monday.

Captain Hate

Somebody brought this up at AoS: why isn't there more outrage at the terrible reporting on the attack on Rand Paul? Leaving aside that some commenters here, who shall remain unnamed by me, were figuring he somewhat deserved it because he was sleeping around the neighborhood due to the inane reporting about it being over grass clippings, all reporting about it was done in a very tongue in cheek way as if the reporters thought it was funny or somehow deserved it. And that attitude is particularly shitty after the Hodgkinson attack where Paul was also present.

People should've been fired over this.

Comanche Voter

Hey my left eye is the dominant one. So I shoot left handed. When I snuggle up to an M-16 or M-14 and pull the trigger, the danged cartridge casing pops out right across my nose. Makes it hard to keep a sight picture. Which of course was a bit of a problem if you were a light weapons infantryman in the late 60s (as I was).

And try finding a "left handed" sporting rifle in the civilian world. With a lever action gun, you can keep the weapon on your shoulder and take that second shot.But I've not been able to find a left handed lever action rifle, although I'm certain that a few examples must exist. With a bolt action rifle it won't make any difference. You are going to lower the thing to your waist anyway to work the bolt and chamber the next round.

OTOH I write with my right hand--and play golf right handed. I was the despair of my grade school penmanship teachers and didn't get any better as I got older. And my golf game is nothing to write home about either.

exdemocrat

A while back at the driving range i noticed that the guy next to me was alternating between swing lefty and rightie. Half the clubs in his bag were left and half right too).
He told me he was a rightie but trained himself to play as a leftie to balance out his posture etc, and because different shots favored one or the other side better. Pretty cool, huh?
I made myself chuckle because I caught myself wondering if this was golf 'legal' Lol

jim nj

Funny that,

When I was very young I didn't understand the shuffle step you use to move forward on a boxing opponent.

I'd start out in a righty stance and when I advanced I did so with my left foot. So now I'm fighting like a southpaw. Back him up again and the the right foot moves forward. Now I'm a righty again.

Didn't fight too often and I was ungainly at it at the time, but I usually won. At the time I thought the way to win was to always move forward given the chance. Maybe it was more of the switch-hitter thing that was un-defendable.

Rocco

henri, I would think the spin would be hard to judge if you're used to righty's. But I think the stats show no difference in receivers muffing the ball. Those soccer players taught punters a lot.

I know baseball catchers are taught to turn their backs toward the outfield when trying to catch a pop up in front of them because the spin of the ball causes it to drift toward the backstop. If they didn't turn their backs like that they'd be chasing the ball instead of waiting for it.

jimmyk

Nadal is a natural righty but trained himself to play tennis left-handed. Seems to have worked.

Jack is Back!

daddy,

Reason for left wiping hand is that in Islam, you eat with your right hand and its considered unclean (haram) to eat with the hand that wipes your ass:) That is why the thieves have their left hand chopped off so that the rest of their lives they have to eat with the hand that wipes their ass.

In Rugby (Union rules)it is almost a given that a top scrum half, fly half and fullback are capable of kicking with either foot especially drop kicks for points. In golf 90% of golfers are slicers. Since the majority by far are righties, architects favor doglegs that turn left giving hookers of the ball an advantage. Ask Lee Trevino why he doesn't like Augusta:)

If you go to Ireland and decide to play a local day-rate golf course don't suprised to end up playing with some locals and find that one or more them play crosshanded because that is how they play hurling and hold their stick.

Prayer smoke rising this morning for all JOM intentions--- as is the case every morning. May GrandFather keep us all close this day.

I hope everyone who has the opportunity to enjoy friends and family this holiday weekend will appreciate the time and will breathe deeply to accept this Gift of Love bequeathed during this brief moment granted as a Life on Earth.

It's so precious. Indeed.

I'm left-handed and dyslexic, and a total klutz at everything athletic, except horseback riding, in particular dressage. Which I attribute more to my father teaching me to ride and buying me my own quarter horse at the age of four. When it comes to mastering a sport, there's something to embedding muscle memory a a very young age.

henry

Sure Rocco, spin comes from which side of your foot you use. If you kick balls all day, you ca control bot direction and speed of spin for fun effects. (Granted a round ball is easier than those pointy things).

Thomas Collins

The Broncos might agree that left footed punters are tougher on the punt returner, Rocco.

I'm pretty sure I could play golf lefty or righty and it wouldn't help one damn bit.

Threadkiller

My dad was somewhat ambidextrous due to the severe beatings he took from the one room grade school teacher.

He found it easier to write with his left hand but that was frowned upon in the late 20s, early 30s.

The teacher would smash his letf hand whenever she anticipated that he was going to use it. He then wrote terribly with both hands. :-/

No wonder he lied about his age to go fight in WW2.

jim nj

Comanche Voter,

Never thought of that about rifles, but when I worked as a photographer I used my left eye rather than my right. Most photographers shot with their right eye because the advance lever on a manual camera would be in a convenient location. I had broken my nose several times as a kid and could only get a good fit to the left eye with the advance lever touching my right eyelid. Awkward.

Got a motorized advance camera and that solved the problem of the lever in the eye.

Now I wonder if shooting with my left eye got me better pictures.

Another interesting thought - if you are an American photographer you will compose from left to right, as that is how we read. If you are a Japanese photographer, you will compose from right to left, as that is how they read. The result is very eye-catching to the western mind. Very novel perspective.

Ch:

Did you see the article by Rand Paul’s wife? It does seem like while we talk endlessly about Roy Moore, a lot of other things signaling our second great unraveling are being ignored, as the left doesn’t like to admit they have a lot of pricks on their side.

Today is one of my favorite days of the year, food prep for Thanksgiving hosting day! I do as much as I can in advance. I do a sit down for 20-24 and everything hits the table at the same time. Immediate family and good friends I have adopted through the years. I hate people having nowhere to go. My wife, the lovely and talented, doesn’t mind when I invite strays.

I golf righty, shoot lefty for hockey and can throw darts with either hand. JohnH

The Infamous Ignatz

--With a bolt action rifle it won't make any difference. You are going to lower the thing to your waist anyway to work the bolt and chamber the next round. --

If so, you're not doing it right.
A practiced bolt operator can cycle the bolt without taking the rifle from their shoulder or their eye off the target. Especially useful when, oh say, a charging elephant is bearing down on you. :)
Impossible for a lefty but fortunately there are a lot more left handed bolt actions than there used to be.

mockmook

"have their left hand chopped off so that the rest of their lives they have to eat with the hand that wipes their ass"

Just a guess, but I think they would have to use the same hand afterwards regardless which other hand met the chopper :)

jimmyk

Computer mouses?

Yeah, not sure of that one either. I switched to using the mouse with my left hand because my right wrist was bothering me, and I was worried about getting carpal tunnel syndrome. It helped a lot.

Some scissors are surprisingly hard to use left-handed, at least for me, a righty. I think it's the tendency to push with the thumb and pull with the fingers, which forces the blades together if you're a righty, but apart if your lefty.

The Infamous Ignatz

The biggest problem with scissors is so many have the grips contoured for righties that they don't fit lefties. A lot of them downright hurt.

The Infamous Ignatz

"Sinister", "turd wiper".

Not feeling the love guys.
I'm a southpaw but fairly ambidextrous.
Like Jim NJ I found switching from right to left in boxing to be highly advantageous. Many talented lefthanded boxers languished because they couldn't get fights.
Like Comanche I'm opposite eye dominant which makes shooting a little tough. I should have learned to shoot right handed.

daddy on the Left Bank

At the pub so can't look it up proper, but I have a vague memory that the tradition in ancient Greece was to have the strong fighters on the right side of the line going into battle, and I think what clobbered the Spartans in their last famous battle in about the 280's BC where they really got unexpectedly demolished, maybe by the Corinthians, was that whoever they were fighting switched tactics and put the strong fighters on the Left facing Sparta's strenght and that twist unexpectedly destroyed the Spartans. Dr Weevil or any Classics guys, does that ring a bell?

I also have a vague understanding that at some sub quantum level the characteristic of "spin" in subatomic terms, had the opportunity in theory to be either left or right, but that in this universe, unlike Hillary's Earth 2 Universe, the spin is right not left, if we can apply such terms to such a thing.

Also, my beer would like to point out that the Evolutionary idea put forward is that, the heart in general being on the left side of the chest, the supposition is that the mother would cradle the sleeping newborn child in the left arm, with his head closest to his heart, thus keeping him calmer than craddling the child in the right arm further from the soothing sound of the mothers beating heart he had heard in the womb for 9 months. The theory then being that over the eons, the moms who cradled kids in their left arms and kept them a little quieter over ages of humans under predation, would be slightly more favored by Natural selection, and thus the free right arm would become dominant in the population, lesding to 90% of humans being Right handed and only 10 percent of the species being that creepy left hand variety. And thats all my Belgian blonde 7.8 Trappist Beer has to say about that👨‍🎨

Jack is Back!

mockmook,

The way it was explained to me was that the right hand is considered pure (haram) not the left. Now you are eating impure food. Agreed to us, no difference but to a devout or semi-devout muzzie it must be.

Don't know how many of you have traveled to the UK or Ireland and hired a car (that is British for renting:) and it is a stick shift. How well did you adapt to shifting with the left hand and driving on the left side of the road? At first, I was nervous but surprised that it went well and was quite easy to adapt. The biggest issue for me was now I had to concentrate my left eye (less dominant) on the centerline when driving.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Threadkiller,

My dad's father had terrible handwriting for the exact same reason. He wrote right-handed (badly) but played baseball left-handed.

The reason I know this is that my brother and my youngest sister are left-handed, and when they were in school my grandad commented about how he thought they should not be writing that way.

He was amazed that kids were allowed to write left-handed.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

My son called. He will be released today without bail, but it might be a while because of the holiday crowding at the jail.

There are always reasons to be thankful, and in this case the "no bail" thing is a blessing, as I would have to borrow money from siblings in order to deal with a bail bondsman.

He said he will take the bus home. All I need to do is call his work and let them know he might be late tonight.

One step at a time.

Electron "spin" is probably a misnomer, daddy. No one knows if anything is actually spinning, and if I remember right, the magnitude of the observed magnetic "moment" would need to be created by the outer surface of electrons spinning faster than the speed of light. At any rate, I don't think either "spin" direction is preferred over the other. It's just that each electron can inhabit one of only two quantum "spin" states. Right and left or up and down are purely arbitrary terms for these states.

BARON COHEN TO PAY FINE FOR CZECHS SPORTING BORAT MANKINIS

PRAGUE (AP) -- Comic actor Sacha Baron Cohen has offered to pay the fines for six Czech tourists who were reportedly detained by authorities in Kazakhstan's capital Astana for dressing up as his character Borat.

Sporting lime green "mankinis" and black wigs, the men had hoped to take a picture in front of the "I Love Astana" sign earlier this month.

But local police fined them some $68 each for committing minor hooliganism, according to local media.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Baron Cohen says: "To my Czech mates who were arrested. Send me your details and proof that it was you, and I'll pay your fine."

We used to have to get hit in the face with a full 2-3 second blast of pepper spray every year for training purposes. They used to tell us that if we ever had to testify in court, the first question would be, "Have you ever been pepper sprayed, do you know what it feels like?" I asked the training officer if he was going to shoot us too? Stuff is nasty.

MM,

Look for the price of comparable used cars. (same kind, same year, same miles) Find 3 matches if you can. When they offer you a settlement use that for leverage. They offer you $1800 you have 3 ads for the same car going for $2500. That's how that works.

How well did you adapt to shifting with the left hand and driving on the left side of the road?

It only took an hour or two for me to get used to that. What really gave me a case of Shrunken Sphincter Syndrome was the narrowness of the two lane Irish roads once you got off of the motorways. It seemed like you only had a few inches of leeway between that stone wall on the car's left and the folks whizzing by a whisker from your right mirror. And don't get me started on the rural bridges that you only realized were one-lane when you were already halfway across.

My dad was born a lefty at I time when it was considered a "defect", so he was forced to become right-handed.

Probably not a good thing, but his uneducated parents didn't know better.

Upside was he was a hell of an athlete, who was impossible to pitch against. He would decide whether to bat lefty or righty as he approached the plate and the pitcher was on the mound.

He could do most things equally well either handed.
