Sportsmanship...

Post by Placid on Tue Jul 22 2014, 17:11

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside and asked, “Do you understand what co-operation is? What a team is?”
The little boy nodded.

“Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?”
The little boy nodded.

“So”, the coach continued, “I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a pecker-head, dickhead or asshole. Do you understand all that?”
The little boy nodded again.

He continued, “And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play too, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach a ‘dumb ass or shithead’ is it?”
The little boy shook his head “No”.

“Good”, said the coach. “Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother!”
