그냥 게임일 뿐입니다 It’s Just a Game
전 가끔씩 미국 코치들이 여유있는 표정으로 이렇게 말하는 모습을 볼때마다 점점 친미 사대주의자가 되어갑니다.^^
“세상 어디에도 ‘반드시’라는 것은 없습니다. 아무 것도 따로 할 필요가 없어요. 그저 이기려고 할 뿐이지, 반드시 이겨야 하는 것은 아닙니다. 진다고 감옥에 간다든지 바다에 던져지는 사람은 아무도 없어요. 그냥 게임일 뿐입니다.”
The Los Angeles Kings, like a number of teams in the Western Conference, are currently on the playoff bubble.
But just because the defending champions need to finish strong in order to qualify for the postseason, don’t be throwing the term “must-win” around coach Darryl Sutter.
“There’s no ‘must’ anywhere,” Sutter said last night after the Kings beat Montreal in a shootout, per LA Kings Insider.
“You don’t have to do anything. Just try and win. There’s no such thing as a ‘must-win.’ Nobody gets locked up or thrown in the ocean or anything like that. I’m not into that. It’s just a game.”
The fact that somebody actually did ask Sutter if they’re “all must-wins” now is possibly the biggest surprise in all this. If there’s one coach that’s not going to bite on that, it’s Darryl Sutter.
Still, we’re glad somebody did ask, because “nobody gets locked up or thrown in the ocean or anything like that” is a good line.
