May the Best Man Win

Interesting article by David Crisanti about wrestling. It’s worth a quick read. Here’s an excerpt and the link:

But although the outcome is seldom in doubt, wrestlers do love to watch wrestling. Where else in life can you see a test that simply gauges the better man, all randomness due to wind, rain, the bounce of a ball, performance of teammates or the subjectivity of judges taken out of the equation?

Despite my background as an athlete I was not a big believer that sports build character. I was more on the side that sports revealed it. But with the benefit of time and experience, it is clear to me that this sport builds humility. It does so by dint of its lack of chance.
