More Important Than Points

I was observing a class yesterday while students were playing games throughout the room. One girl was bragging because she had captured material and was counting up how many more points she had then her opponent. The coach asked the class, "What's more important than points?" Most of the students responded as he had intended, "checkmate." Yet, before that answer came through, one of the smallest kids in the class confidently ventured the answer, "Having fun!"

The coach had to admit that both answers were more important than points.
