    Sportsmanship

    I'm a rugby player. I'm 5'11", weight 150lbs and only 15 years old. Not exactly the profile of someone that would expect to be careful in a rugby match. That's wrong.

    Clay M

    The person I look up to the most is Clay Matthews. He's an linebacker for the Greenbay Packers. He is so inspiring because he made me want to become a linebacker too. Also in his first season he has 11.5 sacks 1 interception and 36 solo tackles (in 11 games). Just being a rookie, he's having a great season. ...

    Derrick M

    The idol I look up to is Derrick Mason, WR now for the Texans, but known for the Ravens and Titans. He's always been a great WR that plays the game well and fights to win, stays out of trouble, and is a great person. I will always look up to him in my life as my hero, even when he's long retired!

Sportsmanship, Pass it on.

Watching this commercial right now as I type on my home TV. I enjoyed it immensely. I wish I had learned this lesson more while in HS sports.

Pain is temporary, pride is forever. Don't sit and complain about losing that game, be proud that you were able to compete and respect the other competitors.
John, Canada

Life is too short to care about winning or losing. It doesnt matter, life is too valuable to waste so just live your life to the fullest, live like you were dying.

I'm just a kid doing his homework, but while doing my homework I realized that this is a really great website. I might become a big fan.

I've seen many of the value commercials and I love them all. These may be the only character building some of our children ever get to see. Thank you Foundation for a Better Life.
B Smith, Muncie, IN

Sportmanship is not only for sports. It is human nature when having done something stupid we think how can I spin this in my favor but most can't live with a lie and will own up and you feel better and build a realationship of trust.
Randy N, Blaine MN.

I just saw a commercial. It had to be one of the BEST EVER!!! I know it had a GREAT message!!
Robbie F., SC

Hi - I was very encouraged to see the billboard along 7th avenue in NYC referencing sportsmanship! Although I am a Physical Therapist, I had to stop working at this profession due to a chronic back injury. I started a business that spotlights sportsmanship. Although it is a passion of mine, it is slow in gaining recognition. Thanks!
