Cheering you on when you lose
Who is waiting at the finish line, and who will be cheering for you at the final banquet, even when you don't win? Especially when you don't win…
I'm not talking about the sometime fan who rewards the winner, or the logo-wearing baseball fan who shows up when the team is in contention… I'm wondering about the person that is in it for your effort and your passion and your tears.
