||They called it a
tie but the video replay
reveals Mark touched Elan out by a hair.
I'll never forget when my friend Mikhail
beat me at chess in four decisive strokes.
"You have to play the game," he
as I gaped at a board where almost all the
pieces were still in their starting places.
These guys got game. Whether
disc golf, or pool foot races they
give it their
all. I can hang with that.
Competition is healthy
so long as it doesn't sour you the
way it did that
princess gymnast who fell on her ass then
as they hung the silver around her neck.
Poor sports might get
gold but they never really win.
