Luke Hochever: Zen Master

Recently, having been given the bum's rush to the bullpen, Luke Hochever was asked one of the important questions of life: i.e., how does one respond to adversity? His response was a combination Buddhist detachment and Taoist mystery:

“Yeah, but you overlook that,” he said. “You look more at the position you have to help as opposed to what’s not there. That’s how this game is. It’s all about perception. It’s how you view whatever it is.

“If you view it as a bad thing, it’s a bad thing. If you view it as a good thing, it’s going to be a good thing. That’s how it works in everyday life as well.”

Asked if he planned to view it as a good thing, Hochevar smiled: “Yeah. You have a choice.” (emphasis added).

This, my friends, is great wisdom. Luke Hochever is a Zen master. Lao Tzu would be proud, and so too would that blind old bat Master Po from the classic Kung Fu TV series.

Perhaps Luke has finally "figured it out."

You know?
