Wide World of Sports – Victory and Defeat

Ah, the wide world of sports. I grew up watching that TV show and it brings back so many memories. Sports truly is a very wide world. So many different types of sports, both individual and team sports. Not only are there many different categories just in one country, but then when you look at all the countries together, the ways people are active and play sports is truly fascinating.

Then there is the agony of defeat, the flip side of the thrill of victory. Because there is always defeat for someone. This notion of raising children to not have a winner but everyone wins, is ludicrous. At some point they will realize they have had a cruel hoax played on them, if they don’t realize it already in that environment. There is always a winner, and always a loser. That’s just life.
