Canada Games Sport for Life Centre

Title

Inspired and entertained against my will

By Steven Lyons

Being proven wrong can go two ways — a bitter pill to swallow or a valuable lesson learned. The latter was the case for yours truly last Saturday night.

Sport Manitoba held its annual Night of Champions gala at the Club Regent Event Centre and it was not at all what I had expected. Good thing.

Earlier in the week, I received word the event was not having a dinner with the awards. Say What?! — no free meal. I was also advised it would be an "Academy Awards" type thing — yeah, right — where folks would be seated for a 150-minute awards show. There would be nominees announced and then envelopes would be opened to reveal the winners. I had previously committed to being one of the evening’s presenters and despite my best brainstorm, I could find no reasonable reason to weasel out of this.

I must admit folks, I have often been guilty of pre-judging something or having contempt prior to investigation — and that flaw was again revealed to me at Saturday’s event.
