Good Sportsmanship

September 6, 2017


The coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside
and asked, “Do you understand what co-operation is?
What a team is?” “Yes, coach”, replied
the boy.
“Do you understand that what matters is we win or lose as a
team?” The boy nodded in yes.
The coach continued, “I’m sure you know, when an out is
called, you shouldn’t argue, curse, attack the umpire,
or call him a pecker-head, dickhead or asshole. Do you
understand all that?” Again, the boy nodded yes.
And when I take you out of the game so that another boy gets a
chance to play, it’s not good sportsmanship to call your
coach a dumb ass or shithead is it?” “No,
      “Good,” said the coach, “Now go over there and explain all that
      to your Grandmother”!
