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?" 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 an out is called, you
shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a pecker-head. Do
you understand all that? Again the little boy nodded.

He 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 a**-
****' is it?" Again the little boy nodded.

"Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your grandma."

I love it !! Sounds just like some of us grandmothers even if we don't yell it out loud. Honest, I've never done that.

Even though I will have many more years to come before I become a granny, I already am a mother.. AND I think I may be just that; at least in my heart..
Feel free to browse...

As the wife of a former Little League coach I gotta say that's the way it is.
Moms and grandmas were the worse.
