The year is 1977. The then-Oakland Raiders are playing the then-Baltimore Colts in an American Football Conference playoff game for the right to advance to the conference championship. The score is tied after regulation play, 31-31, and still tied after a full overtime period. In the second overtime, the Raiders drive toward the Colt end zone at the open end of Memorial Stadium. It comes down to second-and-goal at the Baltimore eight. It comes down to Coach John Madden.

At the start of the season, University of Oregon discus thrower Kevin Carr taped 3-by-5 cards around his apartment, reminders that he was a world-class athlete. "Around the time I hung those up, I was throwing 181," Carr said during a break in his workout at Hayward Field. "Since then, I've improved my throw by 13 feet. "I've made advances physically, but not to that extent," he said. "That's why I can attribute it to the mental training."
