COLUMN: Following rules important in sports, life

-A A +A
By John Shindlebower

If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’. So goes the mantra that’s been repeated in many a NASCAR garage as pit crews have tried to wrench their way to the tiniest advantage. For many, a checkered flag seems to justify a checkered image.
But it’s not just racing where shenanagins have been used for a competitive edge in the sporting world. I’m not sure if any game is immune to those who try to cut corners, bend the rules, skirt the system, or just blatantly cheat to get ahead.
