I think there are different views of sacrifice an I agree with what you're saying. In an earlier post I was referring to the stories we all know - a parent putting it all into the kids hopes of tennis stardom... selling the house and moving into a trailer, working part time to coach the kid, getting a divorce over differences of lifestyle... you know, that kind of sacrifice. Not worth it.
