Winning is the Ultimate Soap Box

Why did everyone and their grandmother know that Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul Jabber had shed their "American" birth names because of a much deeper identification with Islam?

What allows sports legends to leap frog over competent people working their way up the ladder in everything from business, to acting, to politics?

Winning.

Why did millions of people know or care about Curt Schilling’s political leanings? Or for that matter, how did he manage to get millions of dollars in investments and a $75 million loan guarantee from the state of Rhode Island to start a gaming company which he had no business running?

Because he pitched a killer game with blood pouring out of his foot in the World Series.

So now is not the time to fold as Shaun Powell assesses the Clippers effort in an article on sportsonearth.com.

Powell also does a great job of pointing out that plenty of people need to explain why they elected to work for Mr. Sterling.

Well here’s my suggestion: come together as a team…go all the way…and then voice your opinion in a way that elevates you above him.

Check out this interesting article, and then root like Hell for the Clippers. This debate will have a lot more weight to it, if one side is being spoken by world champions.
