SPORTSMANSHIP OR FOLLY?

The following unique story, recently documented on You Tube and around the Internet, has been the subject of much debate lately among sports enthusiasts. Some feel that the assisting players from Central Washington are heroes, having demonstrated great unselfishness and sportsmanship. Others feel that they gave too much, undermining the serious nature of their sport. After you watch the video, let me know what you think.

As for me, I vote that they are heroes. I think that the players and coaches from Central Washington demonstrated great character, and didn't give away anything that hadn't been rightfully earned. This story makes me feel "EXTRY" good, as Andy Griffith would say. I can tell you that I would be quite proud of Mallory Holtman, if she were my daughter. The same goes for Liz Wallace, the shortstop. Your thoughts are welcome. Did Mallory and Liz go too far? Or are they a great example of what sportsmanship is all about? What think ye?

I'm with you, Jones. I think it was a great gesture of sportsmanship.

It is a very good story - not enhanced by the syrupy gushing of the commentator. Couldn't he have been gagged?

You ask about UK reaction to the Presidential primaries. Short answer...

McCain - the general UK view is that Republicans are right of sensible and generally dangerous. At least McCain has an IQ the right side of dull normal but he is little noticed over here.

Hillary - generally disliked. She lacks Bill's charlatan charm.

Obama - would win by a country mile here but has been making too many mistakes of late. Couldn't his PR people see that Jeremiah Wright was a car crash waiting to happen? Plus the 'God and guns' thing breaks rule1 of running for office - don't insult the voters! I mean, that's basic!

something to offend everyone here ;)

An afterthought on primaries...

Another twist in the tale and it looks as if the game is up for Hillary. But Hill and Bill just don't seem to get it. I think this is an overdeveloped sense of entitlement. The nomination was hers. It was the natural order of things.

But now it isn't and they don't understand what went wrong.
