Although Spain defeated Argentina in the Basketball World Cup, our squad’s performance was absolutely brilliant. There’s so much to learn from these players, their discipline, their commitment, their passion. We should listen to star Luis Scola’s advice and apply it to our everyday life. There’s no magic here, he says.  Simply hard work, consistency and a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, as a society we lack that inspiring team spirit, that feeling of pride and loyalty that exists among the members of a group. Particularly in politics, that vanity fair plagued by “divos” and “prime donne”. This team spirit should undoubtedly be nurtured at school, from a very early age. After all, we all belong to the Argentine Team, in spite of individual differences. And our goals in common should prevail.
