Good Sportsmanship


Do you have it?


College basketball came to an end of the season last night and baseball season is now in full swing, it’s time we discuss sportsmanship. After hearing people’s response to seeing their team lose in March Madness this year and crying about who won, it is time to discuss being a good sport.

From a young age we are supposed to be taught on how to be a good sport. If your team losses fair and square, then you hold your chin up and give credit to the other team. Even if you hate the players on the team, still you need to give the respect they deserve.

Say your team is on the winning end of the game. As a winner, you need to walk up to the losing team and show them the respect they deserve for playing their heart out.

To many times, I see winners and losers fail at being good sportsman. Even as a fan we all fail at times when our team win or lose a game.  Maybe it’s the passion we hold for the team or maybe we are just always want to be the best. No matter the reason you have for being a horrible winner or loser, it isn’t right and it’s time to start realize this.

Being a good sport is something we need to teach at a young age. Sadly, many coaches in the pee wee leagues are becoming to hard on the youth. Telling them winning is everything and going to extreme at yelling about it.

It’s time to go back to being pure and spreading the word of respecting the team you are a facing. Playing fair with good sportsmanship. This helps later on in life with friends who like other teams, even know a good ripping on the other team is good and all. Just don’t be a jerk about it and hold a little respect.

Having good sportsmanship, will teach you how to handle issues in your grown up life. This is everything from work to being social. It’s how you handle discussion/arguments with coworkers and friends. In the end it comes down to respecting others and their beliefs.

Being a good sport is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!
