Sportsmanship means to have fair behavior to other players or the opposing team. Of course sportsmanship should involve the encouragement to any other person on the team. Sportsmanship sometimes includes a gracious act when losing a game. Instead of complaint and saying negative things to a person on the other team they would say, "Good Job," or "Good Game." Sportsmanship is involved in the book, Tangerine; they have good examples and show other people or readers of that book how to have good sportsmanship. Two main different types of sportsmanship are bad and good. They both are introduced in the book and show us that in every single game there has to be a type of sportsmanship. Whether it is good or bad they should be one. In the book, Tangerine, it shows us bad sportsmanship and kind of explains it.

    Sportsmanship means teamwork to me. I believe this because if you can work together with other people and when you win, you will not brag about to other people. Also with good teamwork you can win and have fun. With teamwork you can have good sportsmanship. Sportsmanship also means making friends to me.
