Learning How To Lose

baseballI'm a competitive guy. I hate to lose. I really hate to lose.

Over the years I've become a better loser, but the teams I've played for have won far more often then they've lost. I've played for the same slo-pitch team for about 8 years or so and we've won several championships. I joined a dodgeball team this past winter and we ended up winning our division. I've never really been on a horrible team, which is good, because I really hate to lose.

This year, on Thursday nights, I'm playing for and managing a recreational softball team and we're pretty damn bad. We're off to a 0-5 start, and even though I'm playing my ass off and trying to be Cito, we stink. I'm clearly being tested here. Even though I know it's a beer league and "just for fun", I'd like to win once in a while, dammit!

This is the summer I learn how to lose.

Recreational says it all. Just to have fun & some kind of physical activity - especially after the game for "refreshments".
