    Little League Coaching

    At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside
    And asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"

    "Yes, coach", replied the little boy. "

    Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?"

    The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

    "So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue,
    curse the umpire, or call him an a$$hole. Do you understand all that?"

    Again, the little boy nodded in the affirmative.

    The coach continued, "And when I take you out of the game so that another boy gets a chance to play,
    it's not a dumb-a$$ decision or that the coach is a shirthead is it?"

    "No, coach."

    "Good", said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother.
    Some days it hardly seems worth the effort to gnaw through the restraints!
