Aim for bronze

There is an unwritten rule in youth groups everywhere: Leaders don't win games.

Leaders can compete, but the game shouldn't conclude with an adult being victories. For safeties sake, leaders should aim to finish third. No better.

For some, this can be a difficult rule to follow if you're...
a) a guy in his teens or early twenties,
b) competitive, or
c) coordinated.

Fortunately, I don't fall into any of the above categories.

But last Friday we played a game, which I'd never played before, and I tried to get as close as I'm comfortable to victory.

I was agile...
I was focused...
I drew upon my years of game-playing experience and vast reserves of energy...
And still couldn't crack the podium.
