I read a most interesting observation about the Winter Olympics the other day:

“It is not about winning” he said and I smugly awaited the old canard about taking part.

“It’s about losing.”

He had everyone’s attention.

“Think about it. Let’s say each sport has a hundred competitors and you have fifty sports, that means by the end of the games you have fifty winners and four-thousand-nine-hundred-and-fifty losers. And look how well behaved and civilized that whole thing is.”

And it came from an even more interesting source - a Chassidic Jewish blogger.

I'd honestly never thought about it that way.

    Hi! I really enjoy your blog. Is there any way to get an RSS feed of it?

    Actually, that guy's view of the olympics is how I view March Madness, the college basketball national tournament.
