Who is a sportsman?
"One who plays a sport
fairly and loses gracefully"
What is sportsmanship?
Sportsmanship matters not only in
sports, but also in the rest of our everyday lives. In any competition, whether
a job interview, a school science fair, or even a friendly game of cards with
some friends, sportsmanship teaches you to win humbly and lose gracefully.
Sportsmanship also helps us to understand each other better, because when we
get along, we can listen to the other person's perspective, and see where they
are coming from, and avoid a bad, possibly violent situation. Almost everyday
on the news violence is reported at a sporting event, evidence of bad
sportsmanship I know it is not easy to just let some things go, but the
harder people try, the better it will be for all of us.
