Perhaps it's good I have you to explain things to me, using those small, simple words of yours. As well as less punctuation than is typical, because you seem to understand instinctively how much all those apostrophes and commas confuse me.
No one said anyone said that. So...your point?
You seemed to be suggesting that it was hubris for him to drop basketball, which he did well, to play baseball, which he did not do well, and at which he failed. Your post sounded a little sneering to me. In fact, a lot sneering.
I wonder if a change in diet would sweeten your disposition? Maybe some vitamins? More sleep? It can't be pleasant to be as grouchy as you are, Mick.
Lance hubristically claimed he'd finish the marathon in under 3 hours. Many people were outraged at his arrogance in making the claim. (He made it. But only just barely.)
Fine. Then say that, instead of the incredibly bitter-sounding "I thought I was so gifted that I could play any sport I wanted."
In which case, I would say something like "I totally agree with you! And hey, as gifted an athlete as he is, he had a good shot at succeeding."
Are you suggesting that I study your posts, brow furrowed in concentration, trying to work out WTF you're trying to say? But Mick, I already do that!
