When a game is bigger than just a game

For the game thinkers out there, check out this story:

Amid the grieving, a rare act of sportsmanship

So, two things.

1) Games matter. Elsewhere I wrote, “‘Game’ does not equal ‘frivolous’.” Both coaches understood the larger issues at play in this case, and they both handled themselves well.

2) Did you notice how the coaches maneuvered through the rules? No rules were broken in making this situation come together in the desired method. At the same time, the rules were being subverted for a higher purpose. That’s just…interesting…to me. The grey line in between what is permitted and what is acceptable is fascinating to me.
