A rugby ball’s not round

At a recent practice after a bad weekend game our coach gave us a speech.  There had been lots of chirping between players and at the ref which is not what the sport or the club is about.  In his speech he said that “a rugby ball’s not round. It’s not a sphere.  Life’s not fair.”  He went on to say that there will come a time in your life, 5, 10 years from now when life’s going to hit you hard…and you’ve got to keep going.  You won’t always get the calls you think you deserve but that doesn’t mean you can stop.  Sports is filled with sayings like “weather the storm” “finish strong” “just do it” “pain is for a moment, but pride is forever.”  Pick whichever you like but they all say the same thing, that “a rugby ball’s not round.”  

I think people today have forgotten the importance of sports.  Sports have become money making machines with endorsement deals, whose players have reached near godlike fame.  Lost in the maelstrom of individual gain and glory are the lessons which are not learned in a classroom and usually come with old age. Sports teach life lessons that echo throughout a man’s life and transcend the confines of 80 minute games.  Every sports movie, be it Rocky I-V or Friday Night Lights, all teach the same lessons: that life is not perfect, the world will not always be fair, whether its a sports movie, your job, or even your marriage.  But, as every movie has always made clear, its not about what happens to you, but about what you do.  There is a redemptive characteristic in making a choice to act.  Make a choice; right or wrong, but do something.  An older teammate once said, “if you do something wrong, do it the best you can.”  He means that we will make mistakes, but make those mistakes with the same vigor and intensity as if they were the right thing.  Because after enough mistakes you’re going to get it right.  If there is anything to take away from this, it’s that a rugby ball’s not round, life’s not perfect, and while you may be at the bottom of a ruck now, you could be scoring a try in the next minute.
