Correctio

Correctio (cor-rec’-ti-o): The amending of a term or phrase just employed; or, a further specifying of meaning, especially by indicating what something is not (which may occur either before or after the term or phrase used). A kind of redefinition, often employed as a parenthesis (an interruption) or as a climax.

This is not about playing by the rules, being fair, or being nice. It’s about winning–winning today, winning tomorrow, winning every time we show up, suit up, and head out that door. Let’s go!
