Bloviate!

Shortcuts? THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS IN TABLE TENNIS!

Posted on May 24, 2013 at 4:55 PM

Thanks to Andy Gershoff for pointing out this self-enhancement chestnut from an article in the New York Times. It's a beautiful bit of bloviating in the middle of Greg Smith's infamous and oh-so-public resignation letter to Goldman Sachs...


"My proudest moments in life — getting a full scholarship to go from South Africa to Stanford University, being selected as a Rhodes Scholar national finalist, winning a bronze medal for table tennis at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, known as the Jewish Olympics — have all come through hard work, with no shortcuts. Goldman Sachs today has become too much about shortcuts and not enough about achievement. It just doesn’t feel right to me anymore."


Mr. Smith is really putting the best of his CV out there for the talent-seeking masses. Also, Mr. Smith has ping pong talent.
