    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 xxx' is it?'

    The little boy shook his head 'NO'. ' GOOD', said the coach. 'Now go
    over there and explain all that to your grandmother.'
