A Dialogue for the September 12th World

If You Win, You Might Hurt My Feelings

That’s right. The message is….go out, don’t do your best…do your average. When you compete, make sure you always let the other team score, so that we can all be pals after the game.

The coach of a Dallas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 was fired Sunday, the same day he sent an e-mail to USA TODAY and other news media outlets saying he will not apologize “for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity.”

Kyle Queal, the headmaster for Covenant School, said in The Dallas Morning News online edition that he could not answer if the firing was a direct result of coach Micah Grimes’ e-mail disagreeing with administrators who called the blowout “shameful.”

On its website last week, Covenant, a private Christian school, posted a statement regretting the outcome of its Jan. 13 shutout win over Dallas Academy.

Dallas Academy has eight girls on its varsity team and about 20 girls in its high school. It is winless over the last four seasons. The academy boasts of its small class sizes and specializes in teaching students struggling with “learning differences,” such as short attention spans or dyslexia.

No, what’s SHAMEFUL is that administrators scheduled a game between the two schools to begin with. What’s wrong with this picture? Imagine Jesse Owens or Michael Phelps being allowed to compete in the Special Olympics.

Exactly. How ridiculous is that?

Why should the coach and the girls team be chastised for beating a school that hasn’t won in FOUR YEARS?…no matter what the score. And now the coach is fired? Both the administration at Covenant and the administration at Dallas Academy are CULPABLE. This game should’ve never happened.

The second half started with a score of 59-0. Seeing that we would win by too wide of a margin, running down the clock was the only logical course of action left. Contrary to the articles, there were only a total of four 3 point baskets made; three is the first quarter, and only 1 in the 3rd quarter. I continued to sub in bench players, play zone defense, and run the clock for the rest of the game.”

And remember, this was a High School game….not Elementary School, not T-Ball, not Pre-K or two toddlers playing hoops inside Babies-R-Us.

It’s bad enough that liberal America continues to emasculate boys in the classroom and in sports, it’s quite a trick when they manage to do it to our girls.
