He is right. Once you learn how to win, you have no excuse to do anything else. I've been on teams that were "losers" and then found the guts to win and have gone on tears. In little league of all places... we lost all the games my first year. I think my coach really sucked. Then as I got older I ended up on better and better teams, to the point where I went 5 or 6 straight years without losing a game (right up until my last game in high school, which we did lose... but I gave it everything and then some batting .800 in the playoffs and .725 and winning the batting title in league). It was pretty cool. Winning is contagious. Sorry, the only thing I have to brag about in my life. I had a good swing.
