Whether winning or losing at the game of life, Max Childers prides himself on being a good sport.

While his intermittent employment, lackluster love life, and standard, sardonic "liivin' the dream" response to any inquiry as to how he's doing have prompted some of his less understanding friends to call him the dreaded "L" word, Max Childers of Nashville, Tennessee, shies away from labels like "loser," preferring to focus on the fact that winning isn't everything.

"It's not even close to everything," he said. "Besides, what are we even playing? What's this big game I'm supposedly losing?"

He chuckled and answered his own question. "I know, I know, it's life. But again, life's not a competition. It's a journey, everyone knows that. And plus, like I said, even if it were a contest, winning isn't everything."

Max says that he long ago made a decision to focus not on winning or losing at the grand game of life, but on being a good sport - regardless of what happens. "The important thing is to be gracious," he said.

And graciousness, his friends agree, is an area in which Max truly excels. "He's very polite," said Max's buddy Billy Jackson. "He may be a loser, but he's not sore about it. Not even close."

At the compliment, Max beamed. "Now, I call that a win."
