The Week of The Also Ran

Vince Lombardi can suck it.

You know that old quote, “Winning isn’t everything, It’s the only Thing”? Yeah, well that clearly isn’t true.

Think about the biggest headliners from the past week. Josh Hamilton put on a show for the ages at the home run derby. Greg Norman turned back the clock at the British Open (I’m sorry, the Open Championship). The New York Liberty hosted the first ever professional basketball game played outdoors.  Al Gore challenged the country to produce all of its energy from alternative sources within the next ten years.

What do they all have in common? They’re losers!

Hamilton finished second in the derby. Norman crapped out on the back 9 Sunday. The Liberty lost to the Indiana Fever (coincidentally, in 98 degree heat). Al Gore is NOT the President, despite all those votes he won 8 years ago.

Americans loves a good story. and they love heroes they can relate to. This past week, they got plenty of both. No blue ribbon or championship trophy can top that.
