Raising the Performance BarMost people have a sense of fair play. When two mismatched teams or individuals compete with each other, interest usually wanes, and from a sense of sympathy oftentimes the underdog is the crowd favorite.

When skills, equipment, coaching, and officiating are all relatively even, then a sense of fairness prevails and -- because the outcome of the event...

(photo credit: Heartwarming Authors)Memorial Day has come to be recognized as the official kickoff to another great summer.
