Finding A Way

Red Sox! Play offs! Yes!  Anybody surprised by my reaction, of course not; am I surprised to see them in contention...well kind of after their ignominious fold last year.  Surprised and overjoyed to see them in play, thrilled to watch these nail biting games, ecstatic that there will be a game six...all of that and more.  The best part is watching the way they play, watching the way they win and ultimately understanding why they have come back so hard this year.  This year, the Red Sox are playing as a team, a unit, a scrappy bunch of guys with a common goal and belief in themselves.  They've got a spark they haven't had in awhile and although there are those who believe its all a matter of trades and strategies, I think its a whole lot more than that....I think it's magic and a mantra, 'find a way".  And they do, every single game, even the ones they lose. They never quit, they never slow down, they never stop trying, even their defeats are inspiring because they gave it their all and then turned around and did it again, the next day and the next and the next until....here they are, fighting and scraping their way through some of the closest games in play off history.  I watch them with the thrill and intensity of every Red Sox fan but it's hasn't been just a roller coaster ride, it has been a life lesson.  They play together, they work together, they cheer each other on and they never give up; they don't lay blame at each other's feet, they don't trash talk their opponents, and they don't take anything for granted.  Think about that, it's a great way to accomplish  goals - to never stop trying, to accept defeat with grace and then do it all over again until you get what you want... or not, but knowing you gave it your best shot.  

I haven't seen much of this behaviour off the baseball field lately, not in the federal government and not in our own little borough.  In fact a lot of what I have seen is posturing, self promotion, close minded stubborness, and nastiness.  I see people willing to destroy in the name of pride and greed, I see politicians and business people, and people who are only concerned with their own ends, doing whatever it takes to get what they want despite the consequences to the people who depend on them to keep life good and just and profitable.  I don't know about anyone else but I'm taking a page from the Red Sox' playbook - I'm playing to win, not just an election or a contest or a lottery, but in everything I do and I'll do it with determination, honesty, teamwork and always, always "finding a way".

    This article is really good, a friend gave me a look. I looked, I would like to express the feelings I looked. Others did not feel that I do not mind, at least now I deliver myself.
