There's no award for almost. No one brags about the consolation prize. If victory is sweet, defeat tastes as bad as foot fungus smells. HALL OF FAMEputs it mildly "2nd Sucks (ass). Real talk. Sportsmanship is over rated. Know what people like less than a grand standing winner? A loser, period. Going down gracefully is not something you want to be known for. It doesn't perk up the resume.
Anyone can claim "we're number one". It takes a different breed to say we "suck at losing". Totally different angle. That means a lot gets trashed on the way to making a masterpiece.
