  1. My brother coached Little League, Babe Ruth, and HS baseball and he quit all three for the same reasons. He still had the itch to coach, so he ended up coaching girls' HS softball until he retired. He said that they, and their parents, were better behaved than the boys' sports. Somewhere upthread someone mentioned the push to get kids into college sports programs. I think there's some truth to that. Parents are living vicariously through their kids. As you wrote, the kids are the ones who suffer.
  2. I sit here on the stairs 'Cause I'd rather be alone If I can't have you right now, I'll wait dear
  3. And daddy doesn't understand it He always said she was good as gold And he can see no reasons 'Cause there are no reasons What reason do you need to be shown?
  4. They didn't even trade him to Minnesota. He retired and asked them to release him so he could officially retire as a Packer. They did, and soon after, he un-retired (again) and signed with the Vikes.
  5. Good post, Virgil. I agree with most of it, but I'm hoping they find a way to keep Edmunds the same way they kept Milano when we were all pretty sure he'd get more on the market. Edmunds may not come up with a lot of flashy plays, but I think his role on the defense would be hard to fill.
  6. Get me out of this small-time Texas town I'll be runnin' as soon as my feet hit the ground You can't bust me 'Cause you don't know what you found
  7. Cuz if you want my heart, you best walk away Cuz all I wanna do is F-U-N-K F-U
  8. The head coach tries to ensure that every game ends happily.
  9. Anyone think he'll pull a Michael Jordan and play for the Rays or the BoSox? 😉
  10. Oh, babe Don't leave me now How can you treat me this way?
  11. Even if we assume that this is McD's defense and not Frazier's (which McD himself flatly denied, even when the D was in top form), the "scapegoating to avoid accountability" thing would be to fire Frazier. We can debate whether McD is too loyal to fire an underperforming coordinator, but he's shown no sign of deflecting blame onto a scapegoat. It's more likely that he looked at the injuries and realized that no DC could get more out of a bunch of 2nd and 3rd stringers in key positions.
  12. Ditto. I think we could have handled the Ravens, but I suspect we'd have faced the same fate against KC as the Bengals did.
  13. Well said, Shaw. The whole post is spot on, with the two quotes above standing out the most.
  14. Whiskey's too rough Champagne costs too much Vodka puts my mouth in gear This little refrain Should help me explain As a matter of fact, I like beer
