Heartlander of the week: Proud Losers

To Gary Fisher, Steve Smith and the Flintstones.  They didn’t always win, but when they did it was clean, and when they lost it was clean.

There’s an old saying, “Winning isn’t Everything, it is the only thing.”  Well, my contrarian self is going to have to disagree.  There is honesty and dignity and truthfulness and fairness and sobriety and clean hands and clean blood and the reputation, trust and pride of your community.  Among others.

The World is a more complicated place than it once was.  OK the Black Sox cheating scandal back in the day proves it was never that simple, but it is definitely more complicated today.

To First Principles . . . .
