You play to win the game:
But it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game that truly counts, right? It certainly is if you’re this young Miami Heat fan:
Props to this kid’s youth sports coach for getting through to him, and for his old man for not stomping out what little innocence remains in the athletic realm. Of course, if the "Heatles" only put forth a good effort tomorrow night in Boston, this youngster might change his tune pretty quickly.
I believe the kid was sincere, but there is great sarcastic opportunity in his words of encouragement. Every sports arena in the country should iso on that audio and play it after a victory - a final middle finger to the opponent and its fans as they file out of the stadium. I can't say for sure, but I have a feeling guts trivia has a new "you lose" sounder. :)
