Team sports like football and basketball form a tribe to encourage and police the activities and culture of the effort.
Individual sports like wrestling, tennis and Xcountry require more “self” to compete well and even survive the endless hours of practice.
Different kinds of personalities choose the different kinds of sports.
Padding along a hot and dusty trail alone step after step does not have the thrill of the crowd’s rise and fall.
And with team sports even though you may excel a teammates’ bonehead slip up can derail the victory you have fought for so hard.
Sports and LIFE can parallel each other in so many ways.
Always lessons to be learned and new paths to follow.
