WOW, I messed up this communication big time! This is the penalty for multi-tasking. I didn't mean to imply you were the jerk who cut my 8 year old. I read your blog every day, even before Dear Abby and the LA Times. My apologies. As a condolence gift I'll help you plan the food for your team party. This is a link to Normar Garciaparra's Carne Asada recipe http://www.latimes.com/features/printedition/food/la-fo-carneasada16-2008jul16,0,2189305.story I bet you can use Nomar's quote below in an HR Capitalist Blog Entry Nomar Garciaparra Says... "When I was a kid, I tried all the positions, and I enjoyed them all. Back then, my idol was Bugs Bunny, because I saw a cartoon of him playing ball - you know, the one where he plays every position himself with nobody else on the field but him. Now that I think of it, Bugs is still my idol. You have to love a ballplayer like that." Thanks for all you do Kris. You are most appreciated!

This one hits my hot button. My sons are now 16 and 24. I still remember the church league coach who "cut" my 8 year old son from his team because it was "too dangerous" for him to play with the team (it was his third season). I was in chemotherapy treatments at the time and didn't have the energy to push back. We still see the coach once in a while and wonder why we didn't laugh it off as ridiculous. My three kids all played along with lots of other sports. Little league baseball seemed to attract more coaches prioritizing their own egos ahead the kids they coached. Was this a boomer thing? Kris - I suggest your survey the dads reading this blog. "Was your most fun season the one your parent DIDN'T coach?" I usually liked to be involved with my kids activities, it was enlightening to find out 1)Played because I was the team mom or 2)Wished I'd just cheer from the sidelines like all the other parents.
