A Valiant Effort

I am not really a basketball fan, but the Toronto Raptors certainly had my attention.  Although they did not win game seven and will not advance to the next round, they have earned everyone’s respect and should be thanked.  They brought a winning, can do attitude to a city that seems stuck in a sporting slump (except the Argonauts or the Rock).

I was shopping today and I heard the stock boys and cashiers discussing the score.  Every few minutes another voice would ring out, begging for an update.  I don’t remember the last time I witnessed something like that.  It was great.

They might have lost, but they aren’t losers.  They along with the fans (die hard and bandwagon types alike) are the winners.  It was a great playoff series, and they deserved to win.  They deserve some respect.  They earned some respect.

Thank You.  You have done an amazing job.

One thought on “A Valiant Effort

  1. I saw something about the Raptors team when I was a kid, I think it was a sport magazine and together were lots of other North American basket ball teams… so as I was a kid and didn't speak English yet, I chose the Raptors because I liked the dinossaur with the ball and the shoes, hahaha! Coincidentally this team is from my favorite city, my second home, maybe 🙂
