I can't help but think of two things The Jarrett said at the blogger weekend:
1. "Remember this: 3rd place NEVER gets 2nd place money!" and . . .
2. "I was IPSC world champion once, I've won the nationals nine times, and I won't bother boring you with how many times I've come in second since nobody cares about that stuff but me anyway."
All those guys have every right to be proud. I mean, it's not like they placed first in a classifier at the Thursday Night League with the Springfield Tactical Shooters, but it's still a pretty big match and all. Nothin' to be ashamed of.
