like.. er.. Battle Royale?
tell that to Stephen Hendry.
a game of football, down the park. you play because playing is fun, not because you want to "best" your opponent.
but again with the lottery: the "thrill" of checking your numbers is NOT worth Â£1 (at least to me).
I don't waste a pound on a ticket. I choose six numbders and write them down and then play along like everyone else. That way I get the excitement without the expense of the pound.
has a winner ever said that?
If you aren't playing to win, why the fuck are you playing in the first place? If you get enjoyment from being a loser, then you deserve to spend the next eight months locked in a brothel in Penge with an undersexed David Blunkett and some jelly.
That coming first is the worst,
Coming Second is the best,
Coming third means you have a hairy chest,
If you come fourth you are a golden eagle.
but you still try to win. You don't TRY to come second, you run as fast as you can to try and win the race. Sure, admit the best guy won, but you've got to have a go at winning. Otherwise it's just kinda pointless to be there. You don't train for for years to get to the Olympic final just for the 'love of the sport', surely?
is meeting someone so obsessed with winning that they lose track of what is really important in life.
I have no desire to be the best at anything. I am totally aware of my strengths and weaknesses, and am damned sure of who I am. The only time I get mad is if I don't think I have performed to the best of my abilities, I must have had about 30 snooker cues in my unremarkable snooker career
