My son's ice hockey team (He coaches at the university level) was engaged in conference tournament play this week end. In one sense, they did not do well...4th in regional standings...but in another, I am very proud of them. In 4 games in a 48 hour time span...grueling!!!...they won 1, lost 2, tied 1; but two of the three were decided in sudden death in overtime against their "bitterest" rival, and the other was a very close call against the ultimate conference champion...I think the character these boys showed in being able to keep going in the face of defeat and disappointment and fatigue is remarkable, and I am proud of them. (not to mention, of my son)What does the old adage say..."Failure isn't in falling down, but in failing to get up again."?? I'm trying to remember that, since my cursed scales show a gain of 4 lbs. this past week. (I can see some muscle definition where there wasn't any before, though, so maybe...?)
