I agree that they have nothing to do with each other. I think it would be really good for you to give it a shot. What I don't know is whether your ego will allow you to be really bad at something for a really long time, with constant physical reminders of how bad you are. As I said before, some people are better for it. Most can't take it and quit, often telling anyone who will listen that they could have done it but for this or that. My impression of you is that you spend a lot of time telling yourself how great you are at things. Like how great you are at being humble.
