A Random Deed of Mercy

Let All the Children Play

Does it bother you as much as it bothers me how serious and "un-fun" kids sports leagues have become? I'd love to revert back to the days when kids would form pick-up games on their own, but since those days are gone, I'd like to introduce the next best thing. There's a coach in our community whose first priority isn't winning but rather in making sure every child gets to play. That's how it should be. How sad it is that some coaches only play the "stars." The coach I'm so pleased with is setting what I hope will be a new standard. You can easily pick out his teams. They are the kids who are laughing and enjoying themselves (win, lose or draw). Thank you to this merciful, joyful man.
