Perhaps I'm being too much of an old fogey, but I miss the grace and humility that was displayed by the athletes of my youth. A case in point is provided by the recent Cleveland-Golden State NBA playoff game. Major chest thumping and other look-at-me histrionics were in evidence all during the game.
One of the Cleveland Cavaliers boasted he was "the greatest player in the world" - and this after his team had lost the game! I probably don't need to tell you who that player was.
In my humble opinion, it's better to allow others to praise our abilities, even in the realm of sports.
