Some old boxing humor. I don’t really follow a lot of sports but I admit I kind of admire the martial arts– just two people, a bare handful of rules, and just their own abilities from there on out. It’s very individual– your skills against another person’s skills. In team sports you can be your best and do all sorts if great, daring things… but if the rest of your team isn’t up to the challenge, you still end up on the losing side. With individual sports, win or lose, it’s all on you. I suppose that’s a pretty strange sentiment coming from someone in the Army, where it is all about teamwork, but I guess I like to step back from time to time and evaluate individual merits.
