John Kerry is “trying so hard” to stop the fighting in between Israel and Hamas. His “effort” is all that matters, right?
In 1990, then New York Giants football coach Bill Parcells wrote a book called “No Medals For Trying.” It was an inside look at how the Giants prepared for a 1989 home game against the Philadelphia Eagles (The Giants lost, but still won the NFC East with a 12-4 record).
Parcells’ point was: “Trying is good, but results are what really matter.”
In professional and college sports, every coach “tries so hard” to win. Some succeed, many don’t. Those who succeed keep their jobs. Those who don’t, get fired.
If John Kerry’s — and Barack Obama’s — jobs are more important than that of a professional or collegiate coach, then their results — or lack thereof — are much more important!
