Winning is giving your best throughout the whole tournament
even if you fall short of the championship.
Winning is having two best friends
even if they hate each other sometimes.
It is pitching a no-hitter
even if your team had the no hitting.
It is winning a war
even if the soldiers don’t come back.
Winning is winning.
