Hot Topic Tuesday: Should Christian athletes care about winning?

For years, Christian athletes (especially those at the professional level) have been plagued by the notion that their faith inherently makes them “soft” or perhaps less interested in winning than their non-religious teammates.

I’ve talked to many professional athletes about this idea and the responses have been fairly uniform. I’ll share some of those thoughts in the near future (as well as comments from Lance Berkman, Albert Pujols, Jeremy Affeldt and others) in my personal response to the question, but for the next few days, I want to hear from you.

Please post your thoughts on this question: Should Christian athletes care about winning?

Looking forward to seeing what everyone has to see. — cb

Join us tomorrow when we’ll hear from legendary LPGA golfer Betsy King and how her foundation “Golf Fore Africa” is making a significant impact.
