The low-down on rivalry
Wednesday, July 19, 2006
Taking out the competition is a very skillful and practiced art throughout the world. In all walks of life there is a set goal and a handful of competitors competing for the top spot. Whether its sport or “business,” the true competitive nature is there, in sport it’s a bit more evident though. In business it’s almost imperceptible- the subtle nature of competition among “colleagues” who repetitively attempt to one-up each other. In sport you can actually tell the competition that they suck without having jaws drop in unison and reprimands for bad “etiquette” thrown at you from all directions. It’s interesting that the capitalistic nature of the two are actually identical initially, sport is simply the ultimate culmination of capitalism… Too bad Floyd blew today, but Levi’d be the first to walk up and let the reporters know he’s the best of the American’s, however worthless they may be at the moment. What’s the point of talking when you’re 9th? How’s he gonna gain 7 minutes to the guys that are putting time into him every day? It’s a race for the first American now, like on the u23 national team. That’s too bad though, I’d have liked to see Floyd win.
