Please Explain To Grandma!

At the ball game

A must read for Grandparents.
(Those who aren't will love it, too.)

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball 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 an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a dipwad or numb-nuts. Do you understand all that?'

The little boy nodded 'yes' again.

He continued, 'And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach a 'dumb-ass peckerwood' is it?'

The little boy shook his head 'NO'.

'GOOD', said the coach. 'Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother.'
