Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

I'm not huge into baseball but the Cards are much more of a rival than the Cubs. Everything in ILRead More stinks and is a joke, the Cubbies haven't been rivals for years.

As always in baseball---it is about pitching after the All-star break. The Brewers have a longRead More history of having arms fail. This year is already showing signs of issues...and its early.

The shrine game has always been a good one for taking the kids to though.

I will gladly take, pay for, these Thursday tickets off your hands.

I'll keep that in mind, seriously. I know my wife and I won't be going and my brother, who getsRead More first dibs when I don't, lives in Chicago and is unlikely to take them. I'll let you know what happens.
