OK, off soap box.

I've met a few coaches like this guy in the past. You usually find they are coaching for the glory they think it brings them and not for the kids. These guys need to be run out of coaching.

Wow. That wins some sort of award for boneheadedness.

How much more profound does one need to be?

Can you tell that I'm avoiding writing a paper this morning? 2500 words on changes in billing for 2013. Even I don't want to read it and I'm writing the #$^%( thing!

Wow I'll have to remember this basketball thing the next time you guys talk about a football game that ends at 43-0 (think it was a Jets game) and see if you say the same things

Congrats... and I can tell there is a bit of itterness and resentment towards the family that cuts a little deeper than just an observation.

I am confident when they meet there new grandchild, it'll all change.

Best of luck to you both.

Yeah, that's a big story around here.

I don't know if you saw it or not, but I've seen comments from the Arlington coach and I have to say she is a total class act as opposed to the Bloomington South coach. We all know that Bloomington is known for class and sportsmanship anyway.

Truthfully, you have one of the larger schools in the state with a historically great basketball program going all the way from Bloomington to Indianapolis to play a small school. It doesn't even make any sense why these 2 schools would even be playing each other, but they did.

Here's a link to an Indy star article talking a little bit about it.

We had a high school coach that did things like that around here a few years ago. He coached at a high school that had close to 4000 students at the time, it was the only high school in the city. They ran off something like 130 straight games without a loss but built that record by playing a lot of small schools that were one or two classes below them. But to many he was a fantastic coach and a hero in some circles. He would even have his team practice on Christmas Day!

Morning gentlemen. Nothing new or exciting going on around here. My dad questioned my sanity last night when I told him I was thinking of taking the kids downhill skiing. The sad part is, I agreed with him. Guess I've got the itch to ski real bad when a hill whose longest run is 300 yard looks good.

Anyway, one more shameless plug (I promise not to always mention this stuff here), but we are doing custom hand made bead bracelets to raise money for our adoption. We can do custom colors such as college or high school colors. So Kentucky, Purdue, Michigan, Maryland, Georgetown, Wisconsin, Florida, Marshall fans show your colors! If anyone is interested let me know.
Can you post the link again, David? I've been not keeping up on-line lately...

LOL! Sounds like you've been to our local mountain, Sundown. Vertical elevation? 1600 feet!
