On Saturday, two of the best floor ball players I know battled it out at a friendly tournament ... and we watched on as they lost because of unfair-play.
What do you say to a couple of kids who've worked hard to play fair but have just been cheated out of first place by someone who didn't?
I listened as the fathers spoke to the team and was inwardly proud, the recurring theme being fair-play... play to have a good time... play to be proud of the game... don't stoop to that level.
Their attitudes were solid and sound despite the disappointment, and I say they're the winners this time around. First place.
