All That Is Good In Sport


People who aren't sports fans really miss out on experiences like today's U.S. Open playoff between dark horse Rocco Mediate and the incredible Tiger Woods. This was yet another entertaining day in a weekend of high drama: the title was determined on the 19th hole played after Tiger birdied on 18 to level the score once more. I am so impressed by runner-up Mediate: like Santiago in The Old Man And The Sea, his attitude and performance illustrates the essential truth that the glory is in the struggle, not just in attaining the prize. And Tiger's response to adversity was similarly admirable, reflecting the qualities of determination and focus that make him a champion.
