Their team always wins, besting all the Great Scot winners (who each could pickup and throw the heaviest member of the opposing team) and even the U.S. Marine Corp team. From the observers' point of view this is how they do it. They work in the absolute precision needed for a Pipe Band, not a nano second out of sync with their teammates, and they ratchet in very small increments, relentlessly, inch by inch by inch.
Fulfilling my strength training commitment today pulls up the Things I get to do today, and I mentally watch the Abbotsford Police Pipe Band play and march. I see their tug-of-war team making the slightest bit of headway over and over and over to unbeatable success. I understand that even the tiniest advance when repeated enough can move anything. I don't need to call the police, but drawing on their example fuels my resolve, my muscles, my strength and my success.
