Darn those butterfingers

OK — I know the Olympics are pressure-packed. You trained for years and years for this moment. You wanted to quit a million times. But you didn’t.

Finally, you’re here. The Olympics. Yay! You’re the best of the best. You’re way fast. Way strong. Way good.

You have a job: Take a stick from someone who hands it to you, run 100 meters, and hand it to someone else.

Unfortunately, this was just too much to ask.

I can see losing a race because the other team’s faster. Losing it because you dropped the darn stick is just lame.

Yeah, I know you feel bad. I’m just saying…

Sports is human life in microcosm.
