I worked today... for four hours and it was a only a freshman basketball team to a nearby school.
On the way home the boys were talking about how an older boy they knew who was mouthing off to a coach and wouldn't shut up. He ended up getting in a bunch of trouble and suspended from some games...problem is he was being scouted by the colleges that was most likely to scholarship him for basketball. A shame probably hundreds of thousands of dollars of school down the drain because of his BIG mouth.
Then they told stories of kids that they knew who were 16 years old and still in 6th grade...of course I couldn't shut up and told them that I hope they had good grades they all piped up and said "oh yeah our parents make us get good grades."
Guess there hope yet for all of futures...after all this is the generation that will be supplying me with a good nursing home...:)
