Pearls of Wisdom :) A Lesson In Passion

It is a passion that has much less to do with the triumphant wins and heartbreaking losses, than with the commitment, determination and love of sport which these athletes show every day, all year round.

I have seen this passion every morning when I see the swim team or crew team eating breakfast after insanely early practices.


I see it later those same days, when these teams are again in the dining hall following afternoon practice.

I have seen it in the football players, who were back in Cambridge for preseason while I was still finishing summer classes.

I have seen it passing by the wrestling room door, propped open all hours of the day, seven days a week.

I have seen it in South Florida, where the baseball team played during everyone else’s spring break.

I have seen it in the football player who came dressed in wrestling attire to cheer on our grapplers; or in the wrestlers who spelled out H-A-R-V-A-R-D at the football games.
