An opposing coach nominated the St. Joseph-Imperial 8th grade volleyball team coached by Patti Collins for a RAS. She said, "My team only had 6 players, and both teams worked very had in all 3 closely contested sets. In the 3rd game, one of our girls twisted an ankle and had to come out of the and cheer from the bench. After the match ended, the girls shook hands at the net, then all the St. Joe players ran over to our bench and shook the hand of our injured player and each one wished her a quick recovery. I thought that was a great act of Christianity and sportsmanship, especially considering St. Joe just lost a hard fought match. Our player has a severe ankle sprain and may not be able to play the rest of the year. She may not remember this act of kindness, but I will not soon forget it. It is great to see we have such acts in the CYC."
A study of US elections has shown that the result of sports events can affect the results. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that when the home team wins the game before the election, the incumbent candidates can increase their share of the vote by percent. A loss had the opposite effect, and the effect is greater for higher-profile teams or unexpected wins and losses.  Also, when Washington Redskins win their final game before an election, then the incumbent President is more likely to win, and if the Redskins lose, then the opposition candidate is more likely to win; this has become known as the Redskins Rule .  
Discipline is another aspect of sports and games. Here discipline means social discipline and personal discipline. In a play field one is expected to accept his position in the team and play, obey the captain and contribute to the success of the team. This is social discipline. Keeping fit and observing punctuality. Spirit of cooperation, tolerance and friendship is personal discipline. Achievement is possible only by a disciplined person as he is always clear about his aims and objectives. That is why, it is said that the battle of waterloo was fought not on the waters of Waterloo but on the play fields of Eaton.
