A Soccer Lesson
« on: September 07, 2009, 08:50:27 PM »
At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 7-year-old soccer players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"  The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

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

"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when a foul is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him a pecker-head.  Do you understand all that?"  Again the little boy nodded.

The coach continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach 'a dumb butthole' is it?''  Again the little boy nodded.

"Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your mother."
"I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me."  Duncan Vandiver

A boy can do half the work of a man, but two boys do less, and three boys get nothing done at all. :)
