Once upon a time, sporting events were as much about building character, learning fairness and how to conduct yourself as they were about perfecting a skill. Today it would appear that "sportsmanship" has little to do with sports.
Instead, sports are all about building self-worth and personal enjoyment. Heaven help anything that gets in the way of those two goals.
Winning? Well, that's somewhere on the list of goals but certainly not above self esteem and fun.
