The melodramatic cliché of ABC’s Wide World of Sports, “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat the human drama of athletic competition,” is intoxicating. One of my favorite movies is “Chariots of Fire,” a fascinating story of two completely different British runners who compete for the gold at the 1924 Olympics. If you haven’t seen it, see it! As a kid, I dreamed of being an Olympic athlete but my dreams were quickly shattered by a guy from the projects who knocked me out in the quarter finals of the Golden Gloves.
