There's Always Next Year in Mudville

The latest episode in the long-running sitcom that is Manny being Manny brings up an interesting question.

When did "There's always next year" become the same thing as saying "We don't care enough to win?"

When did saying "It’s not like the end of the world” become the same as saying "We're not going to play like we want to win?"

Isn't it healthier to put things in perspective rather than view the world as a series of near-sighted do-or-die hurdles? Or does this fall under the "110% Rule," which states that you're not part of the team if you don't say things that make no logical sense?

Me, I prefer the long view.


Would never hire me as his manager:
