What happened last night?
We call it teamwork and oftentimes use the word in passing, as if there isn’t much meaning behind the sentiment. To the contrary, once life presents genuine teamwork in progress, like in The Blue Jackets win over Detroit last night, it’s truly unforgettable.
Some might guess that James returning to the ice was the main reason for the shift of fortune, but to only focus on one man, actually takes away from the all-inclusive team effort leading up to, during, and after the game. A true sense of camaraderie could be felt throughout the band of players, the stands of fans, and hockey house parties across the nation. Setting the remarkable tone of events, was a vibe, an energy hard to describe, now etched in the memories of many.
Defined as a group of people in a combined action, teamwork becomes an abstract concept, one that’s nearly impossible to pin down. Watching The Blue Jackets play against The Red Wings helped put it all in perspective, while the hushed questions of, “So this is what teamwork is all about?,” could be heard streaming across Nationwide Arena and beyond.
Sure The Blue Jackets won this time, but even when the score goes some other way, keep the value of teamwork in mind – win, or lose.
