We Came, We Lost, We Left

We Came to wrestle  another high-school in our conference.

We Lost the tournament.

We Left and picked up the younger boys some McDonalds on the way home. I took lots of pictures, but really need to take a photography class so I can utilize all the bells and whistles on my new camera.

  1. Oh the sorrows of not winning the big one. I know we all say it’s how you play that’s important, but when the kids work so darn hard to get to that big match or game you can’t help but feel sad when they don’t win. Our high school football team went 13-0 to the state finals and in one game lost it all. The really sad part is it has be weighing heavy on the one of the running backs shoulders as he missed the team bus and a rule of the coach is if you miss the bus you have to sit out the first 15 minutes. This running back was the biggest scorer all season. Almost all touchdowns were scored by him. A lesson learned, but at what cost to that poor running back. You can help by feel bad.
    So… did I miss something… you got a new camera? Do tell.

  2. Yikes 🙁 Yeah, I hear ya. It is hard, especially with team sports. Sometimes, like you say, having one kid sit out can be detrimental to the entire game.

    I did get a new camera for my birthday. It is a Nikon D300 (I think – isn’t that terrible?). I’m still trying to learn the ropes to this new one. I think I’m going to have to take a class or something. So many options, so little knowledge on my part.

  3. Yup, I know how it feels. My daughter’s softball team just ended their inter-school meet and sadly, they only won 1 game and are ranked 1 from the bottom. Their coach felt so bad, she resigned from the team and she and the team had a big team cry. I wish they would give trophies for teams that try the hardest to win, despite all odds. But isn’t that what sports is all about? Didn’t I hear somebody say – it’s not in the winning but it’s how you play the game -? But then, winning could be a nice icing on the cake too. My daughter is pretty cool about their team status. She knew they tried their best. And best of all, she knows that she wants to try even harder next time around.
