My cousin, William Lewis, who lives in Santa Lucia, Honduras, wrote me after reading your recent article " Standout of the Year" by Ernest Ramos:
"Great piece! Not enough tributes to the fans who energize and support their teams with such dedication, far beyond victory and/or defeat. Beautiful how "the sport" (in this case the Wildcat Football Team) has brought the Brawley community together in so many ways and over so many seasons.
Would that the same commitment of togetherness and spirit prevail universally among people everywhere, competition notwithstsanding.
I suppose "the game" is ultimately life itself. We're definitely
all in it together in any and all "seasons.". Ultimately victory and defeat are a shared common denominator. Can't have one without the other.
Play the game heart and soul and losing is no less a victory. Win or lose, the true 'fans" will be there for the next kick-off. Adelante!"
My cousin, Bill Lewis, who writes and paints in Honduras using the name Guillermo Yuscaran has become a Brawley Wildcat fan too.
