Well, we won the competitive division. Went undefeated for the weekend! What a great group of guys. Great attitude and we played very well.
So, in an earlier post I mentioned that I would have to play with a former teammate who has been very disrespectful to me over the past year or so. He decided that he would be better off to play for a team that he thought was better than his regular team. Well, I played with his regular team, and we won...he didn't. I guess the grass isn't always greener! It was probably a very good thing for our team that he didn't play, because his negative energy and attitude are very strong; it could have very easily affected the team's performance in a negative way. (Just a side note, he also sponsors the team he chose to leave.)
So, what's the point? Being a good teammate means sticking with a group you are committed to. This guy played league all season with one team, then jumped ship to join another that he thought was better...bad teammate. Commitment is important to being part of a team, club, squad, family, class, staff, or whatever... so honour your commitments, stick with your teammates, and make the group stronger by supporting one another. Team sports, good coaches and good parents teach us these things.
