Every contest, of whatever nature, stirs our competitive nature. Personally, I believe there are people who compete for love of the game, but, there is a segment, which competes only to win and anything less prohibits joy. To those who must win, the game, the discussion, the conversation or monopoly, they have everything to loose and they compete as if at war. There is much to admire in those who" have to win " but, there is much to not admire. Finding the balance reveals much about our character.
