Guest typing: Don't quit because your assistant coach had more success in a game than you've had in the past. You say the assistant coach is new to the team? Nordling typing as Frogster1: Yes. We never had an assistant coach before. Guest typing: Well, then, the kids are getting twice as much attention at practice. They're bound to improve. They're going to play better in a game no matter which of you is coaching. Nordling typing as Frogster1: Gee. I guess you're right. I'm going to stop whining and move ahead with the team. Thanks, Guest. I hope you become a regular on this coaches' bulletin board. George typing as Guest: You're welcome. George's wife (out of frame): Hey, Mr. Assistant Coach, it's midnight. Quit that soccer site and come to bed.
