Passing the Pigskin to the Next Generation

I can't count how many of Ben's football games I cheered on from the sidelines.

Now it's Micah's turn. Look for the fluorescent orange cleats and you can't miss him.
Still one of the smallest on the team.
I had flashes of Ben so many times as I watched this game. He is good defensive player, just like his big brother.
Rarely did his man get past him before Micah pulled the flag.
And he almost had an interception as well.
It wasn't enough, though. The grey Bulldogs lost by a large margin. I think one of the hardest skills to teach highly competitive kids is losing with grace. Any great ways of teaching kids that when they lose, it isn't the officials' fault or the other team just got lucky? I'd love to hear them.
