Good Sportsmanship

·  It’s knowing that the best team doesn’t always win, but the team that plays the best that day, always does.

·  It’s knowing that it’s OK to lose, strike out, make an error or get shelled (as long as you learn from it).

·  It’s putting your arm around a teammate that had a bad game (or didn’t get in) and sharing a similar past experience.

·  It’s leading by effort.

·  It’s dodging the credit and limelight occasionally.

·  It’s other people talking about how good you are.

·  It’s when you beat another team and they still talk highly of you.

·  It’s when umpires and other teams are happy to see you succeed.

·  It’s respecting everyone.

·  It’s delivering a hard, clean hit on a running back and then helping him up.

·  It’s calling a two shot penalty on yourself.

·  It’s sincerely shaking hands with the umpires after the game that they cost you.

·  It’s keeping your composure when you are pitching a no hitter.

·  It’s keeping your composure when you are getting shelled and walking batters.

·  It’s reminding yourself to stay positive when you realize your team is about to lose.

·  It’s showing class regardless of the outcome of the game.

·  It’s business as usual after making another great play.

·  It’s a conscious effort not to show someone up.

·  It’s never making excuses or blaming coaches, teammates, the mound, umpires, the ball, fans, etc, even if it’s their fault.

·  It’s the joy of competing, not just winning.

·  It’s just after the Army Navy football game.

·  It’s a youth coach that provides his discipline in a fair and consistent manner.

·  It’s a youth coach that provides constructive criticism through positive reinforcement.

·  It’s never criticizing, complaining or condemning.

·  It’s an attitude of .I will just have to give a little bit more. since my teammate committed a costly error.

·  It’s feeling great after playing well and beating a better team 2-1.

·  It’s feeling great after playing well and losing to a better team 2-1.

·  It’s what you can give to your team, not what your team can give to you.

·  It’s NOT John Rocker, Randy Moss, Dennis Rodman, Mike Tyson, or WWF Smack Down Wrestling.
