The wide world of sportsmanship

There’s a wide gulf of character in the world of sports.

Which would you like to start with: the bad or the good?

OK, you win, because American Jack Sock didn’t at last night’s Hopman Cup match in Perth, Australia.

Sock led Aussie Lleyton Hewitt 5-4 in the match when he benefited from an “out” call on a serve.

“That was ‘in’ if you want to challenge it,” Sock shouted to Hewitt. The look on Hewitt’s face at the sportsmanship was stunning.

Hewitt won the match 7-5 6-4.

Neshaminy (PA.) basketball coach Jerry Divine could’ve used a little of that last night when he didn’t like a call from a referee in a high school basketball game.

Whether that was a head bump or a chest bump is a matter of some debate, but whatever it was, it wasn’t by accident.

His school suspended him this morning.
