    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 pecker-head.

    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 ***' is it?'

    The little boy shook his head 'NO'.

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