“Sports give us plenty of guidance about teamwork, which we need right now! We need to think of ourselves as #TeamUSA, and we’re all suiting up. One important lesson comes from volleyball: You never call YOURS on a volleyball court … you call MINE. From a really good friend of mine, ‘Coach would have our asses [his words, not mine] if we just looked at each other and the ball fell in between us. You always call MINE. In fact, I once broke my nose because I and another player both called mine and never let up. No regrets.’ You can stay out of the action, or you can call MINE. Anything else just gets in the way.
