today's soapbox

Here's a little idea of how DJ's game went:

You do not play cut-throat baseball with 10 and 11 year old kids. You do not, as an adult, try to intimidate a 13 year old umpire into changing his calls. And you certainly don't tell the kids on your team "Everybody slide when you get to home, just to make them happy," when the rules clearly state that the boys are supposed to slide into home if there is a play there or they will be called out.

Everyone knows this coach is an ass. The other teams are warned about him in the beginning of the season. So why do they continue to let him coach? He is a disgrace not only to the baseball league, but to his own son who has to stand there every week and watch his father act like a petulant, spoiled brat. And a mean one at that.

How are we supposed to teach our kids about sportsmanship and fair play if this coach constantly gets away with his cheap tricks and abusive behavior?
