Thanks for all the messages. Yes, I am alive and well, thanks for asking! 🙂

Every tournament team in college basketball has their season end with a loss accept ONE. This year was KENTUCKY’S year.

Last year, we went to the final game. We went on an Epic Run at the end of the year. No Kentucky fan really thought we would win the tournament, but we enjoyed the run.

Connecticut won the national championship in 2014, but there is not a basketball fan in the world that really believed they were the best team. Sometimes in basketball, like life, that is just the way the ball bounces.

When you know you had the best team, and you lose it is heartbreaking. This has been a special year to be a Kentucky fans. I will go to my grave knowing, they had the best TEAM in the country in 2015.

What made this year so special was the players. They are good kids, who set an example daily for all that were really paying

Coach Calipari’s statement kind of says it all.


I know he is right, but the truth is losing is never good. This years team will always be looked as as the kids that should have won it all.

Yes, I am a sore loser.

I have never believed, “It is not if you win or lose, it ishow you play the game” That sounds good, but honestly I don’t believe that!

I have gone from Numb after the loss to just Disappointed for the players and the fans.

If winning is not everything, then don’t play competitive sports. If you want to have fun go to an amusement park. Life rewards those that play within in the rules, give it all they’ve got, leave it all on the floor and WIN. Winning and losing becomes a habit, as well as excepting mediocrity or good enough. Kentucky has been to the Final Four four of the past five years because we expect to win.

Talented kids come to Kentucky because they have a dream of going to the next level. The right kids are attracted to top level coaches in sports. In business you have a lot of followers, but winners are attracted to leaders that can help them get where they want to go. That should be your goal, become the kind of leader that can help people get where they want to go.

One final thought regarding sports. Being involved in competitive youth sports has been a very important part of many of our lives. It helped us learn to work together as a team, and teaches us how to practice, work hard, appreciate other people’s talent and how sometimes in life when you do everything right you still LOSE. You don’t have to like it, but it happens, it is called LIFE.

Today we seem to want to protect our kids at all cost, and when we don’t give them the opportunity to work hard and lose, don’t we take away valuable life lessons? I was reading an article today talking about how psychologically more twenty something’s have a deeper feeling of entitlement, more than any other generation in history according to this article. Is that because we didn’t allow them to lose?

Let me ask you a question. How many of you think PARTICIPATION TROPHIES Are a good idea? Doesn’t this reinforce a negative philosophy? Think about the 7 key areas of life; mental, physical, financial, family, social, career, & spiritual. We don’t get participation trophies in life just for showing up? Rewards come from commitment, dedication and developing our skills and talents to the best of our ability. That is the lesson I hope my children and grandchildren and those I love learn. Do just show up and expect great things to happen, you have to go after it!

Participation Trophies

Kentucky basketball got me through another cold winter, it always has. I will always look back on this team as my favorite group of young men, an unselfish team, and model citizens ……………….. who should have won it all …….. but LOST. Losing when you should win, is one of the hardest lessons in life to accept. Thankfully when you deserve to win, you normally do, but that is not always the case, so all we can do is live, learn, and keep moving forward.
