  1. But if I don’t stop whining about things I can’t change, people will expect me to do something productive, or at least to stop ruining what others have done all the time.

    • I need to give coffee a try sometime. Overlooked that I meant to say ‘But if I stop…’ until the moment after I hit post.

      At some point in the future, I need to really work on being more careful.

      • Bob – IIRC it was Francis Bacon who opined ‘coffee is slow poison for you drink it til you die’
        I prefer my caffeine cold – Dr. Pepper #1 choice.

  2. Eff Saban. He was given the responsibility to make the Miami Dolphins a fighting team and he accepted only to run away when things got tough.

    His tongue is bifurcated

  3. Miguel- He’s not the only college coach that failed in the Pros… Motivating kids vs. multi millionaires are two different kettles of fish! 🙂

  4. OldNFO – Yep. A guy named Rick Pitino comes immediately to mind.

  5. I was successful in high school sports, not because I had a lot of innate talent. Instead, I was coachable and I never quit. I have always felt that at least at the high school level, sports HAVE to be about character, before they are about winning or losing.
    The difference between a good coach and a great coach is in being able to motivate a young person to building good character while encouraging them to be the best athlete they can be.
