During a baseball game, the coach called Brandon, one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside.
He asked him, “Do you understand what co-operation is? What a team is?”
“Yes, coach,” replied little Brandon.
“Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?”
The little boy nodded in the affirmative.
“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 peckerhead, dickhead or asshole. Do you understand all that?”
Again, little Brandon nodded in the affirmative.
The coach went on, “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 dumbass or shithead is it?”
“No, coach,” said Brandon.
“Good,” said the coach. “Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother!”
