the Ryder Cup

I have been mezmerized by watching the Ryder Cup. Two teams pitted against each other with overriding devotion to winning the cup. National pride drives the golfers and individual egos are buried in order to truly be part of the team.The level of excitement and enthusiasm for the tasks is off the charts. Despite the electricity of the competion there appears to be a deep and abiding respect for the other team. The behavior of the players toward each other is a gracious model that would serve us well in all walks of like .One need not be ugly to those we compete with and there is little excuse to diminish those that have different goals. Being accepting of the other is not a sign of weakness and we don’t diminish our passionate beliefs by being gracipous.Wanting to win while being respectful of the other side would be a good model for us to follow in the current election period.
