Default Instructions from Coach

Must read for Grandparents. Those who aren't will love it, too.

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'* not good sportsmanship to call your coach 'a dumb ***' is it?"

Again the little boy nodded.

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