by their victory festivity. I myself put my hands up after winning a race and a meeting was held by coaches to determine if I should have been
As for the athlete pointing to god, maybe, but I have a strong feeling he was actually referencing their team being number 1, just my opinion. I have
seen the number 1 reference regularly.
What kind of stupid idea is that where you cant celebrate a win?
"I have seen teams demean others by their victory festivity"
What? We're all winners now? NO... face it! I lost sometimes... yea it sucks. But then I won! Take that! in. yo. face. Then I lost... there...
in.my.face... Whats wrong? Thats the point of "competing" to be better than others. To win while others lose. To be better than others. I never got
scarred for life because of losing or because I got slightly humiliated (
to put it mildly) by another player or team that had just beaten me...
it did turn me into a very aggressive competitor...
And you support this?
Bunch of oversensitive butterflies... now you cant celebrate a win? Stupid kids we're raising today... the first time they'll face an "L" will be
"F-OFF YER FIRED"... then comes depression and pills... and suicides, yea... nice education you guys are providing them.
Still not being able to celebrate a win so you dont hurt the losers feelings is one of the most stupid and absurd things I've ever heard. To the
winners: the spoils. To the losers: did your best, not enough, next time, train harder. See those other guys? See clark kent there? No? Then...
They're the proof you can do better.
