I don't think the person saying the bit about the tram runs or even changes his stride. If he beats the tram, he feels it's his lucky day. If the tram beats him, he feels that something bad will happen to him. It's a mental game, not a physical contest. But I see your point--we really don't know for certain the hopes or fears of the person quoted.

In my view, throwing dice is not a good equivalent to counting buttons. Dice gives you a number from one to six. But both touching the buttons with your fingertip and pulling petals are binary 'yes-no-yes-no' schemes. You're not interested in a number.
