Hello Knights,

Today, we share Despite the Loss by Johnny Rodgers III

“This blog is a documentary that focuses on seven of the most iconic playoff performances that resulted in losses in professional sports history. History is written by the victors. Losers are lost to history no matter the scope and magnitude of their performance. Herculean efforts versus insurmountable odds are washed away as easily as sand. All due to their team’s number on the scoreboard measuring out to less than the opposition’s. Here we shine a spotlight on these forgotten performances to demonstrate just what it means to have the heart of a true competitor, despite the loss.”
