Help Wanted: New Saying to Capture Winning Spirit

Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.
It’s not that you won or lost but how you played the game.
With Lance driving a stake through the heart of the only-thing thing, and feigned disregard for winning being oh-so-naive in the modern age of moneyball, we seek something more appropriate for the next generation of fan and player.
A CONTEST! Suggest a new saying about winning. Please submit your entry on or before November 15, 2012 to me at jweeks@camchord.com. Multiple entries permitted (encouraged!). Two categories for winning entries: Best Overall and Best Irreverent. “Best” as picked by our editorial board gets our much sought after camunist ball cap! Holy $&!#! We’ve never let these out of the safe!
