Paintball Sunday

Well the weekend is officially here and it’s time to do what I love to do and that would be play paintball. The place will be Gator paintball in Hudson, our home field and the group should be about 10 or so. The team has hit about 20 players but some won’t be able to make it. As always fun will be had by all…… even those who aren’t part of the team love it and always have a blast. I’m super excited because I’ll get to use my new paintball gun for the first time. It’s a limited edition Dye Black/Gold NT 11 that I was able to get thru a friend. I’ve been searching for one for about a year or so and became aware of its presence around World Cup 2012. I’ve been saving ever since and luckily my friend still had it when I finally got the money so I feel like it was meant to be. For those who don’t know much about paintball guns I guess an easy way to compare it for women to understand would be comparing it to a limited edition Coach purse.

What do you love to do with your Sundays? Who do you generally share this time with?

Sportsmanship

Sportsmanship is something few people forget, but you always seem to run into one or two that like to push the envelope. I’m a firm believer in “Playing by the Rules” as that was the way I was brought up. In my many years I’ve had my fair share of moments where individuals decide they are “Above the Rules” or like to test the limits. The one thing I always like to remind them is sportsmanship is a two way street and what I deem as a mutual respect as well. If you don’t respect your opponents it’s easy to be drug down to a level where “dirty play” can be thrown in but usually ends with bad results. The bad results either being someone getting hurt (whether it is minor or major) or a win as a result of those actions. One thing is for sure, not matter what sport you participate this will happen. For those who push the envelope of sportsmanship I have one word that applies to them and that would be “Karma”. I’m a firm believer in Karma and what goes around comes around. You never know where or when, but one thing is for sure it will come back and get you. So the one thing I ask is when playing any type of sport or competitive activities remember to be the bigger man and a good sportsman. The bad sportsman may have the immediate satisfaction of a win, but Karma will pretty much make them wish they hadn’t won.

What’s the worst display of sportsmanship you’ve ever witnessed or had happen to you? How did respond or recover from it?
