Sports Losses: Perspective is Everything

I am proud to be a Bears fan, and you should be proud to be a Bears fan, too. Following coach Lovie Smith's loss at the Super Bowl, fans welcomed him and the team home and starting speaking out for Lovie's contract renewal. Even we got swept up in the fever.

Contrast this to the the latest news on Bob Wollmer, Pakistan's cricket coach, whose team lost out to Ireland at the world's cup. The Chicago Tribune reports today that following defeat of their national team, fans in Pakistan not only burnt effigies of their national coach, but also chanted "Death to Wollmar" following his loss in Jamaica. Wollmer's highly suspicious death following the match has been followed by the coroner's report. That, of course, ruled death by murder. Creepy.
