From Sports Night - "The Local Weather"

Abby: You're bothered because he came in second?

Dan: He held the world record for five minutes.

Abby: That's five minutes longer than most people do.

Dan: You know, I've heard that kind of thing and I'm going to say this, okay? If you're good enough to come in second place, then you're good enough to be disappointed in it.

...

Dan: It was his whole life.

Abby: Probably wasn't. And his whole life isn't over yet.

Hmm, is this perchance a hint at the results of the upcoming Nebula Awards?
Well, not for me. I'm not up for a Nebula. And I'd have no way of knowing the results in advance in any event.
I totally understand that mentality. Nothing killed me worse than just missing out on winning. If I got pounded the first round or two by the eventual tourney winner I was pissed, but at least I was able to justify that it wasn't my weekend. But man if I wrestled my ass off and made the finals only to lose, argh, I was shot for a long while -- emotionally I mean.
