Health is the new black. Black is the absence of color, and health is the absence of sickness. But in many ways, health is so much more than just the absence of sickness. In a manner similar to
the way a car is more than the sum of its parts, health is like a symphony, 100 trillion musicians strong. When the players tune up, all we hear is a cacophony of sound that is neither coordinated
nor choreographed. But when the musicians begin in earnest, the music transforms, and the sound they produce can be miraculously moving, truly a deeply spiritual experience. Health is
the be-all, the end-all, the trump card, the winning horse, the golden ring, the ultimate prize. In 1949, the UCLA Bruins head football coach Henry Russell “Red” Sanders is credited with saying, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” Sanders went on to say, before the highly-contested football game between UCLA and their arch rivals, USC, “Beating ‘SC is not a matter of life and death, it’s more important than that.” This single-mindedness of purpose, this focus on winning, is highly commendable in sport, as it often brings out the best in the athlete. Some people will say, however, that to make winning so important, even if it means cheating, demonstrates a lack of moral fiber, and shows that the athlete lost sight of what was truly important about participation in sport, which was the striving to be one’s best. Sports journalist Grantland Rice provided counterpoint when he wrote, “It’s not that you won or lost, but how you played the game.” Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympics, is credited with creating the Olympic creed, “The most important thing … is not winning but taking part.”
