Coaching (Pt. 2)

We tied this morning.

A tie.

If not for some heads-up play, we would have lost.

The girls milled about in a confused manner, trying to figure out what D wanted them to do. They were letting the other team have their way because they were convinced that the other girls were a better team than them.

I am seriously pissed off... it's a good thing that we only have two more games.

Addendum: Team pictures went well. No ambualances were needed.

Ugghh.... I'm so sorry that their confidence had been shot, by their actual coach no less.

But I am glad this is driving you to become the head coach of your own team. I love coaching.

Daddy, calm down. Things will all be well soon. :)

Ugh. I would have a hard time keeping my mouth shut.

I bet you'll be a great coach though.

I think you'll be a great coach next year. 8 year olds definitely don't need 20 minutes of strategy, they need to run run run.

Even at professional level of sports, if the other team can outrun/outpace you, it is hard to find a strategy that will allow you to an upper hand against that.

Thanks all!

We have team pictures in about an hour, it will be all I can do not to strangle anyone.
