An Interesting Perspective
Comments From The Compass Desk
The late and great Red Auerbach the former coach of the Boston Celtics (a professional basketball team) , always had Chinese food for dinner regardless whether his Boston Celtics team won or lost a game. ... He always insisted that his team consumed Chinese food for dinner, especially before a game.
The presumption was that good Chinese food should never create the feeling of "heavy" with the eater. Whether Coach Auerbach and his team ever completed a Chinese "nine course" banquet, is a different story.
"Being light is right" is the basic rule. In our case, some of us have always followed the Compass rule of being agile and mobile.
