Sometimes they take advantage of a loud microphone, of a mediocre ‘playing’ career (it is not right to call those who at the very least act questionably off the field ‘athletes’), always in the shadow of others who are more talented, to vent their frustrations. “They take advantage of a defeat, a lost battle, to begin the hunt, waiting for defeat in the war to feed their egos, like vultures feed off carrion. “They will never win an Olympics in Rio, but there they are, waiting for the first chance to show their mean spirits.”But remember: We lost a battle, not the war. My son’s ‘war’ has been going on since he was a kid, always fighting the good fight, always dodging the vultures, always being reborn stronger!”And most of all, respecting everybody, even the vultures.
