Everyone here has likely lost a game due to a mental error, it hurts but it is part of the game.
I think many people are in the Hall of Fame for many sports that weren't really the greatest at their perspective sports. People who promote the sport, people who bring others into the sport, people who mentor and coach others. Many ways to end up in a sports hall of fame.
