Poor Choices

I worked the game last night — girl’s championship between rival Corydon and Seymour. One mouthy parent irritated the ref, so he approached our coach and requested she be removed. He AGREED with the guy in such a way that the guy decided he was being sarcastic (that’s just his personality). When the coach tried to explain, he said, “I’m agreeing with you.” and the guy kicked the COACH OUT. What a ruckus! We were losing by a huge amount beforehand, so it’s not as if it changed the outcome, but, really, folks — give your kids a fair chance!... Set a good example.

Generally, after the second half starts, they release the ticket-taker. Nobody came. Finally, when the coach got kicked out, he left, (probably to cool off) then came back and relieved me. What a night!

The Wayne kids were really neat. They dressed up and got all enthusiastic. As they came in, some wanted their hands marked. I had a marker that would write on people, and was poking silly dots on the backs of left hands. One fellow asked for a smiley face. I joked that I hadn’t had art for a century and got the whole group laughing, so I drew a smiley face. The next one in line wanted a smiley with a Mohawk. I obliged. So, I offered the next guy in line, also one goofily dressed and body painted in Wayne colors, a horse for the Mohawked guy to ride... So after that, they got horse heads. All the rest of the time, people kept coming up for horse heads instead of dots. ONE Seymour kid got a horse head. About 50 Wayne kids did. I did ONE adult, too. (Fraternizing with the enemy, right???)
