SHINS N BOOTS - not a rant

SHINS N BOOTS 

Guest Blogger KEVIN BRANCH

I was asked for the longest time to blog about the Beautiful Game aka football...my mind started to wander so much that I was asked and I quote "Where is your sports blog? " Well... here it is... it's a subject that I have been debating for a verrry long time..

Barbados played Nicaragua at the Astro Turf in the Nations League and Barbados lost 1-0. The Penalty Spot on VOB were reviewing the game ...and the consensus was "the team played well..." My bone of contention is this: why?

Whenever Barbados goes into ANY competition why are we happy to be content with being second best? Not only football but other sports...can me harsh call me whatever even when Obadele Thompson won a bronze medal in the 100 meter dash at the Sydney Olympics. I thought that the achievement was good seeing that Barbados had won its first Olympic medal (in what was probably a millennium) I didn't think that the achievement in the grand scheme of things was nothing more than being the second place loser...now before you rant, rave and curse me out. (which you will do anyway..)

We should be thinking BIG...do you think Usain Bolt stepped on the starting line and said, "I'll just do well today? Of course he didn't...and he has three World Records to prove it...the fastest thing that we as a people do in my opinion always look for an excuse to not excel so my thing is THINK BIG!!
