Making a defeat look like a win

MEMOIRS OF AN IMAGINARY FRIEND did not win the 2012 Goodreads Choice Award. Being nominated was an honor, of course, and making it to the finals was thrilling, but the book finished ninth behind such bestselling authors as JK Rowling, Junot Diaz and Emily Giffin.

However, it  also beat books by bestselling authors like Barbara Kingsolver, Michael Chabon and Peter Heller.

Overall, this is what is known as a defeat.

However, Little Brown UK has made my defeat look more like a victory with this sticker that they have placed on the British e-book.

If someone could make yesterday’s unsightly New England Patriots loss look equally appealing to me, it would be greatly appreciated.
