I was lucky enough to be able to recently attend two polo matches. The afternoon was sunny and hot, while a warm breeze played through the field and stands. A brief sun shower during the second game brought a little relief, more breezes, and grey skies.
The best part was watching the skill the riders exhibited and the athletic capability of the horses. I didn’t mind much about which team to root for: that team, this team, which team? No, it was all about the sport itself, the sportsmanship, and skills thereof.
With all the hubbub about the lack of sportsmanship of other athletes in different sports these days, it is uplifting to see again what was once known as respectable American sportsmanship.
