Losing at Winning is Okay with Beer #NaBloPoMo

Winning or Losing 
Board games, card games, video games - I don't care if I win or lose. It's just a game. Besides, I'm usually playing as part of family time so I have to lose to prevent an evening ending with tears and hurt feelings on the miniatures part. ;)

Sports. Out on the field. That is a different story. In grade school I hated being the loser or on the losing team. It wasn't frustration with lack of skill or anger for not trying hard enough. It was embarrassment. You knew if you didn't play well, your chance at being picked for base soccer was moving closer and closer to last picked. The. Worst.

Just this past Sunday I played in our first sand volleyball game. My first organized-ish sport as an adult. We lost 2 of the 3 games but it was still a fantabulous time. Partly because now alcohol timeouts are involved and partly because I can't be picked last - I'm captain. ;)
