Today Lisa has a game. I am an assistant coach. I will explain how that grates on me later. I don't mind the fact that I am helping her team because I really like to help kids, but I swore I was not going to coach again. Here I am, coaching, more than assisting. My experience before was that in these types of team sports, parents live vicariously through their children. Parents are coaches who give their children unfair advantages. It always seems like the coaches kid is the pitcher? why? Because they are the best player? probably not, but in order to get any time on the mound you need to coach or find a team who doesn't have a pitcher child. Trust me, my child is hardly the best, and farthest from the best behaved. I will say she is getting better in disposition and talent, but I am biased. I have never pushed for her to to be the only pitcher, but I have wanted her to get the experience.
