On the eve of the 1986 Super Bowl against the New England Patriots, Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka reportedly told his team, ”You can only play this game once. If wives and girlfriends can’t wait, tell them to take a cold shower.”
Ditka’s players must have listened, because the Bears slaughtered the Patriots 46-10 the next day; it’s just too bad that nobody gave Team USA the same speech before this year’s Olympic Games.
Less than a week after the start of the London Olympics, the United States has been nearly even with China in terms of total medal count, but is falling far behind on those gold medals. And this is a serious problem because, let’s face it, first place is the only place.
