Behind the 'good job, good effort' kid and why the internet isterrible - China Led Downlight Fittin

Business,Business News,Business Opportunities
When a young man elected to give his favorite team some encouraging words after they lost a demoralizing needed win at home in the EasternConference Finals, anyone who saw it, let's face it, laughed.Laughed heartily. They just lost the most important game of theirlives (or at least since last June), are faced with the realitythat all their pomp and circumstance are nothing but cheap tricks,and that they are not the super-team they or anyone made them outto be. How can you applaud "good effort" when a bunch of old guysand Rondo smoke you at home? Some even thought he was insincere. That the kid was making fun ofthe team for having failed so spectacularly. I mean, that's what weall did, right? I was cracking jokes on Twitter like everyone elseat the Heat 's expense.

Before I watched the video, I assumed the kid wassaying it in the same voice as Christian Bale when he freaked outon set. "Oh, good for you!" But he wasn't. Because NBC Miami found him and checked in with thekid, whose name is Jack Meyer: Jack has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4. He loves to play ballwith his dad, and enjoys collecting the team's memorabilia in hisroom.

His Heat-themed bed is "super cozy," he says. So when people have the audacity to question whether the youngCoral Gables hoops fan was mocking the Heat, the passion in hisvoice makes it obvious where he stands. " LeBron James was fighting so hard, Shane Battier , Udonis Haslem . Chris Bosh only played 14 minutes, yet one of his best games," he said.

Jack, who was at the game with his father James, hopes his cheerswill encourage the team for Game 6. "You can't give up this easily," he said. "Youknow there's always got to be a second chance for you. You alwayshave the power to win." Via NBCMiami.

Seriously, pure sugar right there. Look, your team is going to losefrom time to time, and caring about that is a good thing, it's partof sports. And there's no denying that the Heat's behavior in 2010set them up for this massive dose of glee from the masses at theiroutright failure. But that kid? He's just a fan, whose favorite team happened to puttogether these superstars, which gave him something to be excitedabout. He wanted to tell them that even if they lost, heappreciated what they did on the court.

They're in the EasternConference Finals, for crying out loud. That's a pretty good jobfor most teams. Not the Heat, and that's fine, but I'm not going tobegrudge the kid wanting to tell his heroes that. What should hedo? Tell his heroes they're terrible and he hates them? They're hisheroes. Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star writes about the episode, admitting he laughed at first, too: But then I watched the video again.

And again. Watched closer,thought a little bit more, and you know what? I actually think it's pretty cool. Because we all used to be that kid once, didn't we? We all used tobe innocent sports fans, unburdened by the requisite cynicism ittakes now in a world of fake Twitter handles, anonymous cyber toughguys and talk radio shouting. If you open your mind, there's something much better than a laughin that video. There's something more special, something much morerare, something worth treasuring.

That's innocence. Optimism. Empathy. A reluctance to judge,restraint from belittlement.

via Good job, good effort, and sincerity

Don't Kill the Mellinger . Eight months ago, we didn't have professional basketball. We didn'thave a season. No playoff seeds or rookie campaigns.

We had thelockout, cold, dark, cynical, and brutal. Instead, we get this.Four great teams who have battled their way to this moment againstterrific competition, overcoming adversity and competing at thehighest level for the prize they've worked their entire careersfor. So yeah, good job. Good effort. I'm as brutal as they come onTwitter.

Maybe today I'll try and remember what it was like to justbe a pure fan. (Note: I will not do this, I will continue making fun of people onTwitter. It's too late for me. Save yourselves!) Tags: Chris Bosh , LeBron James , Shane Battier , Udonis Haslem , Boston Celtics , Miami Heat , NBA.
