Message to those “Failures”

It bothers me when those who win the bronze or silver in Olympic events act as if they’re failures because they didn’t win the gold. Seriously? I want to say to them, Hey, you’re going to be standing on a podium. It’s an honor to even qualify for the Olympics and you were one of the top three! There are zillions of us sitting here on our you-know-whats watching you on TV.  I feel good about myself for just walking around the block a couple of times and look what you accomplished.  Get that frown of your face, for heaven’s sake. What’s the matter with you?
