It Isn’t Whether You Win or Lose, It’s . . .

adversity.jpgGreetings from my aerie (lair) in arbitrary spacetime January 9, 2005, Albuquerque, New Mexico. This blog entry is my first in awhile, but one I hope will prove to be the first of many that will evolve into an ongoing online discussion of a statement that occupies my thoughts nearly every I sit down to write anything, to wit:

There are no synonyms.

In less than an hour, an event will begin. At its conclusion a few hours from now, I would like to be able to say, “We (being the Minnesota Vikings) beat the Packers at Green Bay.” I also would not mind saying, “We won the game.” Given what has so often occurred before, I might even be satisfied with, “The Packers beat us at Green Bay.” What I decidedly do not want to have to say is, “We lost the game.”

So, there you have it. Talk amongst yourselves.
