Some a little sore after Lester's no-no

Not the best road to go down, in my opinion:

Jon Lester "Beat" Cancer...

... and anyone who hasn't, or didn't, or isn't going to, is just a loser. They couldn't beat it. They obviously weren't as tough as Lester or maybe they just didn't want it enough. If only all those 55 year old women dying of breast cancer were as gutty and gritty and as inspirational as Jon Lester, a world-class athlete with access to the best care in the world, in his twenties. If only they had the heart, the courage, to do what Lester did they could have won too.

 

(Reducing human experience to sports metaphors is dumb. Cancer is not a game, it is not an opponent. You don't beat it and it doesn't beat you. You don't win or lose. You survive. Or you don't.)
