Daily Prompt – Fandom

As a gold medal winner in our local egg and spoon race sometime during the last millennium (aged 6) I feel I have the experience and authority to comment on sports. I think many have lost their shine. Once upon a time the spirit of competition included good sportsmanship, fair play, dignity, nobility, generosity, integrity, teamwork, co-operation, compromise. These attributes were displayed in victory and in defeat.
This does not seem to be the case anymore. In fact, when a sportsperson displays any or all of the above on the field, or in sporting competitions, he/she makes headlines. It is a sad indication of how little we expect and how much lower our standards have become. I’m going back to my egg and spoon.
