Sport Happens (what did you think the word was?). The Baltimore Ravens and Lamar Jackson had an amazing 2019 regular season. Most people had already crowned them a Superbowl Championship team or at least a Superbowl participant, before the playoffs started. Then they lost their first playoff game and they were done. What happened? Sports Happened. Sports are more than muscle and technique. Games are won or lost by more than speed, agility and quickness. The biggest athlete doesn't always win. The most athletic person doesn't always hoist the trophy. Sports are more than robots or merely a compilation of statistics that can be entered into a computer and spit out a winner. Sports involve human beings and human beings are completely emotional. Emotions can either fuel an athlete or distract them from their goals. Emotions can either control an athlete or they can be controlled by the athlete. Sports (and life) Happen but we can either allow our emotions to allow sports (or life) to happen to us or we can learn to control and manage our emotions so that we make sports (and life) happen for us.
