That's a bummer. Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to for just one night. I saw on-line the testing of this about a year ago.

OK, off soap box.
He had an opportunity to show some class and teach these girls a greater life lesson, but he chose poorly in this case.

Best of luck to you both.
Sorry for the rant, I just hold the institution that is family in very high regard. When it hurts my wife I get defensive.

This is a great place to rant. My sister had push back from the in laws when they chose to adopt from Korea. We're all here for you.

Professional sports is a little different in my opinion. If someone wants to pay me $5M a year to get the snot beat out of me, sign me up. This was high schools sports where the losing team hit 1 free throw in the first half and one in the second. I'm pretty sure that around half time everyone can figure out the game is over. Worse than the score is the *^%$$@&#% attitude towards it. I would be completely ticked if my daughter were on either side in that game, with the anger on the winning coach either way.

And let me assure you that I am not one of the "trophies for everyone" crowd. There is a point where character has to be a factor when hiring and retaining a coach.

Morning Guys

Talked to the kid last night. She ran 20+ miles yesterday in prep for the marathon. She estimated it at around 21 miles but isn't really sure. One of her Christmas gifts is a Garmin GPS watch to accurately track how far she ran. Don't tell her, it is a surprise. Classes are over and this is finals week. SH had a late night free breakfast to keep the kids fueled up as they studied. They are also giving out cookies, cake, cider and hot chocolate during the day. Nothing like that at Florida when I went there. We spent the week having bottle rocket wars and water ballon fights. Kids these days.

If you actually did say something profound, I don't think the rest of us would be able to appreciate it.

Very cool! I wonder if they'll be incorporating something like this into the Avatar land...

Wow, that sounds really...stimulating...

I told my wife earlier this week that I was having one of those Ecclesiastes-type "all is meaningless" type months at work, and it sounds like you're right there with me!
