My team defines success however you say it does, Cap'n!
Just speaking for myself, it's less about my win/loss record than it is about playing to my potential. If I get beat, but I know I put my best Kubb on the field, then I can watch the rest of the tournament in a good mood, cheering for the team that beat me, and go home satisfied. If I *don't* play as well as i know I can - if it's not even close - then I am difficult to be around. I'm not trying to say I don't like W's, of course I do, but 'success' for me is about being able to look in the mirror and give that dude a smile, a thumbs up, and a wink - even it's it's all accompanied by a "We'll get 'em next time."
