At our annual golf club couples tournament, my good friends won the cup by one point. However, the cup was given to the runners-up because a member erroneously reported to the tournament committee that my friends had cheated. When the club president returned from vacation and discovered the travesty, he called and then wrote to my friends apologizing profusely for the unfortunate mistake. Even though he acknowledged that my friends rightfully deserved the cup, he couldn’t take it back from the runners-up. Shouldn’t the errant runners-up be good sports and give the cup to the real winners?
