Of Sports and Kids

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 7-year-old soccer players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"

The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

"Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?"

The little boy nodded yes.

"So," the coach continued, "I´m sure you know, when a foul is called, you shouldn´t argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him a big jerk. Do you understand all that?"

Again the little boy nodded.

He continued, "And when I take you out of a game so another boy gets a chance to play, it´s not good sportsmanship to call your coach ´a dumb bunny´ is it?"

Again the little boy nodded.

"Good," said the coach, "Now go over there and explain all that to your mother."
