Mike Bass’s column on the sports psychologist and his work

MURRAY, Ky. – Dan Wann walks us from his campus office building to somewhere in town for lunch. Sorry, the place in town for lunch, as he sees it. Oh, and I have to try the dinner roll. And I have to leave room for the cake. He recommends the gnocchi first, because I asked. He knows this place and this area, and I trust him.

So I order what he orders. Even the “soup and dumplings”.

“If you see me spilling soup because my hand is shaking, don’t worry,” I say, “my hand has been doing this my whole life.”

“At least you have an excuse,” he jokes, and we laugh.

I appreciate Wann’s point of view.

In so many ways.

That’s why I’m here, because I recently drove more than 300 miles southwest from Cincinnati to see it. I do what I do as a sports fan coach for what Wann did. When it comes to sports enthusiasts, he knows this area as well.
