Quoted from vdojaq:
Wilford Brimley would like to speak to you all......
Haha! Always remember him starring in "the thing" ..locked up , infected and screaming I'm all right now.
Would it not be a good idea to bring the little cereal boxes that transform into a portable bowl when you travel to tournaments? Consume said box/bowl aprox 1/2 hour before your turn? I wouldn't laugh at all.
I normally don’t share trade secrets, but these are my weapons of choice. Some would say this gives me an unfair advantage like blood doping (see Lance Armstrong), but since I don’t play in tournaments I don’t feel like it is cheating when I’m playing with friends.
Cereal is good but for those that aspire to be grand champs it is all about the deli meats and Shasta.
If you poured Shasta in a bowl of capn crunch before a tournament...let’s be real ..that’s cheating more than slide-saves.
Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:
Bruce Springsteen never eats before a show.
To be at his best for four hours, he can't have blood/resources diverted to his stomach.
For you, I suggest a square meal an hour or two before you play and then no food at all at- and during game time.
Coffee or RedBull will sharpen your reflexes.
Good points however, I would go further to say A minimum of 1 hour and half...because of possible doodie urge while you are playing.
