Integrity in Sports

by Fireball posted Jun 9 2014 2:45PM
There seems to be some sort of unspoken segue amongst sports where successful players go from young men and women, eager to play a game they love for the rest of their lives, to people like you and me just going from day to day in their career. Some lose that child-like gleam in their eye from watching their favorite players on screen- to becoming that player they strived to be like. When you've worked your entire life to become the perfect athlete , getting paid millions in royalties from ads on boxes, magazines, and billboards, it's easy to forget what it was like before you reached the pinnacle. This video hit home with me. It shows those special players that have hung onto the spirit of playing a sport they love. It shows integrity and respect in a sport that dominates the planet. Personally, I'm a football fan (American football, of course) but this video focuses on the sport of soccer. Although you can a lot of the same sportsmanship around the planet in all sorts of sports, this has been one of my favorite examples for a while. Please mind the music- that part, is NOT my favorite..but I digress.
