Golly! We've already had a lively discussion on "luck."

TD said there is an element of luck in simply surviving long enough to be in the right place at the right time. Now that's a great definition of luck.

Enlisted Man Clewel mentioned some of the views of Grant's luck. Seems to me that a man who is consistently lucky for four years has something else going for him. (Three years for Lee who also must have something else going for him -- make that two years.)

Here we're in danger of attributing luck to the quality of the opponents. I'll fall back on my original premise that, although luck certainly is a factor, the "ability to take advantage of an opponent's misstep" is different from "being lucky to have an incompetent opponent."

Maybe what I'm talking about ought to be included within the definition of "flexibility"?
