Sports 2009

Another year for my sport teams!

The Tigers are blowing a lead in the AL West; as of today (before the game) they are only 3 games ahead of Minnesota. The RedWings lost Hossa (to BlackHawks), Hudler (to Russians), Chelios (to old age), and a bunch of others; they haven't signed anyone of significance.

The Lions lost their 1st game by 30 some points (0-17 & counting). The Pistons lost R. Wallace & fortunately A. Iverson; they are getting older & signed my least favorite Bull Ben Gordon (a shoot first, shoot second, defense what's that player).

Well as the Cub fans say, "There's always next year!"

“Win as if you were used to it, lose as if you enjoyed it for a change.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“That's what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning.” Richard Bach

“We lost because we told ourselves we lost” Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

LOSS, n.
Privation of that which we had, or had not. Thus, in the latter sense, it is said of a defeated candidate that he "lost his election"; and of that eminent man, the poet Gilder, that he has "lost his mind." It is in the former and more legitimate sense, that the word is used in the famous epitaph:
Here Huntington's ashes long have lain
Whose loss is our eternal gain,
For while he exercised all his powers
Whatever he gained, the loss was ours. (DD)
