Sportsmanship is a movement. Just like every other before it, people have to be willing to express its importance to others and be willing to defend their stance at ever turn. Being a good sport is as old as time. The ball and scoreboard are optional. How we treat others matters more than anything. A poor attitude won’t change infection rates, unemployment numbers, or when we can see our favorite team play again.
Yelling at people never works. Even if they comply, they’re not with you. They just go along so you’ll stop yelling. Treat everyone with the respect they deserve, regardless of their title or socioeconomic status. When you address others, act like your mom is watching. The world changes when we change ourselves.
That’s enough for today. Tell that senior of yours to get their Carl Fricks Sportsmanship Scholarship application turned in by 11:59 tonight. Tick-tock.
