Good pitching and timely hitting by my team lead to a 14-8 win. The boys were pumped! Maybe this should be in the 'Love" thread since I'm on a high after knocking off a really good team last night.
I need a full update please!
Are the kids quitting their stuff? Both of them?
Are you stepping back from coaching? ....you are a little intense with it hon.

This works great if the job is either interesting or so busy you don't have time to be bored. But for a routine job, it would be a death trap. I start watching the clock most days around the 6-hour mark. Having to go another 6 after that point would be hell!

OTOH, my job two jobs ago would have been perfect for this.

Hurry hurry hurry, before I go insane

@ctoma I sound just like a mix of your two youngsters. I played baseball and did Karate continuously through 7th grade, about 8 or so years and quit both. I played Basketball, Roller Hokey, Football also, and did Jr. Lifeguards during the summer. I was a really busy kid with those sports, plus school work I kinda just burned out. I still played Football and Basketball for a couple years in highschool.

My pops was my baseball coach for a few of the later years and while it was cool, coaches kids have it harder when the coach isn't around. At least I did. I had a great arm and could catch any catchable ball headed my way. I earned my position on the field, but the other kids would give me a hard time about it. Now, I could always use more batting practice. I was about average there and was placed accordingly in the lineup. I was never lead off - 4th. I never said anything to my pops about the other kids because I felt it would have made it worse. Now, I am very happy he wanted to spend that much time with me, especially seeing that some parents never even came to watch their kids play. But I wouldn't have minded if he took a step back, let someone else coach, and just spent 1 on 1 time coaching me.

I apologize for that getting long winded, just wanted to share my similar situation. Lastly, maybe stoke that baseball fire again. Take him to a 1:00 pm game, grab lunch beforehand (so that you don't have to lose your arm and leg to pay for it at the stadium), get there early and try to get some autographs.

Good luck and hope your weekend turns this bad week around.
Omg if I can just make it to Friday. Exhausted here.

This was a great post!!!!! It is so true that it sucks being coaches son. Agreed!!!!! It is a shit load of pressure. Sometimes esp during adolescence you just want to be a normal run of the mill kid...not the best, not a stand out, just an average kid. Way less pressure.
