Youth Sports--How Important is Winning? "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Legendary coach Vince Lombardi made that quote famous. But is winning everything when the players are just kids? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the purpose of youth sports -- fitness, teamwork, sportsmanship and, yes, winning. Are some coaches and parents, though, too focused on the scoreboard? Should an eight-year-old have to ride the bench? Join Mike McIntyre for the conversation, Tuesday morning at 9:00.
