In hockey heart and desire does help you crash full speed into the other guy going full speed going after the puck. Heart and desire does help you throw your body in front a puck blasted on net at over 90MPH. Heart and desire is what makes these guys get up off the ice after being hurt, get back to the bench, and get back out there 90 seconds later and do it all over again.
What about pitching, just pitching in general? Holding onto a baseball after being slid into. Making a diving catch... There is also a lot of confidence issues that go into hitting a baseball. I could go on. Baseball players aren't androids. They are competitive too
