From Miriam’s Kitchen by Elizabeth Ehrlich:
Sport is beneficial. Sport is social. Sportsmanship is value to be learned, a value tied in with a larger American way to be. Teamwork, competition, doing your best, losing well: The playing field is a training ground for citizenship. And the kids have good clean fun.
That’s the spirit we’ve lost in this country: a spirit of sportsmanship, a willingness to play fair and lose well. How did that happen?
