Gillette Wingman: Good Sportsmanship

5325

Being a good sport in social settings is something they teach you at a young age. Whether at the bar, at an arcade or at the gym it’s rude to gloat and make your opponent feel lesser than you.

Gillette Wingman knocks the ball out of the park with his advice: don’t gloat!

When you gloat and boast about your win – you look like a jerk and a moment of celebration can come around to bite you sooner or later! Remember, today’s winner can be tomorrows loser, you can’t win every time.

When it comes to video games and you are playing at home with friends or online with strangers avoid name calling and childish behaviour! Our mothers have no part in that and should stay out of these things.

When you win a round, congratulate the other players, a pat on the back is nice sometimes and helps that sting of loss hurt less.

If you’re losing then lose with some tact and be graceful about it, give the winner a handshake and move on. Throwing a temper tantrum will not help. At all.

If you need to tell yourself that you’re playing for fun – then do that and remind yourself that it’s all just for fun! Remember being a good sport tells people what kind of man you are and shows your true colours!

Our Wingman Rainbow Sun Francks (from Stargate Atlantis and CTV’s hit TV show The Listener) adds his two cents

Being a good sport includes helping your opponent even when their struggling – take the Winter Olympics this year, there were instances when competing teams would reach out and help rival teams to finish their event. Don’t be so proud you let others suffer for a win, revel in it together and have some fun!
