The Kobayashi Maru is a test in the fictional universe of Star Trek. It's a training exercise designed to test the character of cadets in a no-win scenario. Yeah I am a geek and know this shit.Well lately sports has left me feeling
very Kobayashi Maru ish lately
Giants - Pats - Super Bowl - No Win - I'm a Jet Fan and my wife is a Patriots fan
Yanks - Phillies - Dominance - No Win - I'm a Met fan
Met Ownership - No Win - I'm a hardcore Met fan
Jet Collapse and Ugly Fall out - No Win - 43 years and counting
Hell let's be honest Choice Parts - West finals in Softball - No Win - no further comment
In the Star Trek universe the only person to pass the Kobayashi Maru was Captain Kirk who reprogrammed the test so he was able to win. He cheated. Despite having cheated, he was awarded a commendation for "original thinking."
Well in my current sports predicament there is no cheating. Its going to be a while and no one is going to feel sorry for me. Look for solutions from within.
Beam me up Scotty
