    Hold it, did Art just bench True? Doesn’t Gil have a say in this?

    After all this time you wouldn’t expect Gil to actually coach too, would you.

    Not particularly. I can’t think of a school district out there that has anything to say if a parent grounds his son for a game.

    Well, so much for the playdowns, might as well just head to Milford CC right now, where Gil can continue to pretend he’s teaching the kids to play golf. For a day or so.

    Will Boo walk away with no penalty or will Mimi have to cut her vacation with Pedro short to come back to teach her a lesson and miss the playdowns in the process.

    I knew there was something different about Art and thanks to yesterday’s MOP it sure looks like old Art had a lot more forehead back in September than he does now. He must have spent the last few months visiting Elton John’s hair plug doctor. Must be a surprise for when mom shows up.

    Have you ever heard of a parent grounding his son for a game? I sure haven’t. He might tell the kid he had to be home immediately after the game, but this is the craziest thing they’ve had yet.

    When I coached I had parents pull their kids for disciplinary reasons, not particularly uncommon. What is uncommon is Gil looking like he’s actually doing work in his office.

    Gil’s got the look of fury, too. Well, this is a new one on me. I played four years of high school sports and have been involved in high school sports coverage for decades. I’ve never heard of a kid missing a game because his parents wouldn’t let him play.

    Maybe what’s throwing things off is Art’s use of “benched.” If True is at the game and in uniform but Art won’t let him play, I’ll stick by my original thought that it’s crazy.

    In today’s world, parents sue the coach because they don’t get ENOUGH playing time. Personal responsibility???? Now that is PC in my world!

    I have bench my son for games in the past for not getting things done (school work, chores etc…) prior to a game.

    This is far from the craziest thing they’ve had yet.

    After researching Art’s appearance in early September, it seems the bright lights and fast living of Milford have aged the old fella. I think we earned our valuable lesson today. Mimi looking tanned at poolside by Saturday.
