How come I can play better then other people in cold dark and damp weather than when it's hot. I mean even when it's 30' outside?

I live in the south and even in the fall the average temp is about 74.
I'm talking about when the weather is all dreary thats when I play my best I play good in the spring,summer & fall but I play at my best when it's cold and I was just wanting to know if it's all mental or something else

I bet the reason you play better when its cold is because you have more energy. When its hot out, you get drained of energy and water much more quickly. It could also be your genetics. I also play much better when its cool or cold out.

when it's cold out, there's more oxygen in the air, because cold air holds less moisture, and more pure oxygen.
Why do you think teams hate playing in Mexico's stadium? because they aren't used to the thin air and extreme heat while playing.

i think its more of an atmosphere thing. Some people prefer to play in the cold such as myself, mainly cause playing warms me up and i can cool down again just as quickly when i stop playing. While some people may prefer to play in the warm spring weather, though i cant for the life of me understand why, maybe they are cold blooded.
