Sport is a metaphor for life. The emotions, the commitment, the effort, the highs, the lows, the blood, the sweat, the tears, the bouquets, the brickbats. Follow a sport, play a sport, you can experience all that life can offer in ninety minutes, five hours, a day, five days. There is much business can learn from sport and vice versa, not least sport would appear to acknowledge that the best players are not guaranteed to make the best managers.
