My Way News - Texas girls hoops team seeks forfeit of 100-0 win Apologizing? For facing a shitty team? I'm sorry, but this strikes me as one of the serious problems in this country. See, we hate to see people fail understandably, but we also hate to see people succeed, especially succeed in a big way. I think it's ridiculous that this team is seeking a forfeit after they killed the opposition who put up no challenge whatsoever. That's how sports work. Two teams play one another and whatever happens stays on the field. The story itself goes on to say how none of the girls on the losing team were upset nor dwelled upon the loss. Good for them, that's what I like to hear. They kept their heads up and figured, "Whatever, we move on and try again" and that's the attitude more people need. But no, people like the other team are seeking to apologize for their victory. People need to stop feeling guilty for being successful. Yes, there are times that you let up because it's getting one sided, but if the other team cannot compete even in the slightest, is quitting or giving the game up to the other team really the appropriate thing to do? To me, that's like saying, "We're sorry you suck so hard so here, you can win this one." It's condescending. I understand that the team is trying to come off as respectful but seriously, you didn't disrespect the other team . . they just suck at basketball, plain and simple. Perhaps this mindset is why I don't like to just blame "corporate America" or the "fat cats" for our country's problems because yeah some of these CEOs and owners are greedy bastards, but not all of them. A lot of these guys started with ideas and shitty living conditions and hit the top, why does that make them assholes all of a sudden? Well, I guess that's the end of my rant. So the questions I ask are: Is this an acceptable end to this basket-blowout? Are you "guilty" for being successful or would you feel guilty if you were? Do you agree or disagree that the balance between success and failure is lopsided?
