Lightbulb Not a real Adenaline rush!

I do the mundane task of polishing my shoes. While I am making em shine, I think about possible game situations, what to anticipate, what position to be in (my mechanics), etc. I prefer to have some quiet time while I do this.

Along the same lines, what do you, my fellow officials, do to keep yourselves into the game? One thing I am trying that I really like is talking to myself during the game.(something I have adopted after reading the NFHS Newsletter and the article for the NFL referee). "Shot is up, watch action on shooter", "left foot is pivot foot", "Ball crossed 10-second line", etc.

What do you do to keep yourselves into both close games and those 40 point blowouts?
