A Baseball Game
At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 8-year-old baseball players aside and asked, "Do you understand what co-operation is, and what team spirit is?"
The little boy nodded in the affirmative.
"Do you understand that what matters in this game is whether we win or lose together as a team?"
The little boy nodded yes.
"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know that when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire or call him a dick-head. Do you understand all that?"
Again the little boy nodded.
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 asshole is it?"
Again the little boy nodded in agreement.
"Good, I'm glad we've got all that clear," said the coach. "Now, go over there and explain all that to your mother."
