If You Win, You Might Hurt My Feelings

Posted by redsatellite on January 26, 2009

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.

When Tolerance Meets Stupidity

Posted by redsatellite on December 17, 2008

Just when I think I’ve seen it all or heard it all….I come across something like this.

The father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, denied a birthday cake with the child’s full name on it by one New Jersey supermarket, is asking for a little tolerance.

SAY WHAT?

You name your kid ADOLF HITLER Campbell and you’re asking for tolerance? So let me see if I have this straight- you’ve burdened your child with a name so infamous -so synonymous with INTOLERANCE- a name so reviled and hated because of the evil pathology associated with it- that you’re disappointed at how people are reacting?

You and your misguided anencephalic wife decide to give your child that name and now you want tolerance?

Heath Campbell and his wife, Deborah, are upset not only with the decision made by the nearby ShopRite, but also with an outpouring of angry Internet postings in response to a local newspaper article about the cake.

Heath Campbell, who is 35, said in an interview Tuesday that people should look forward, not back, and accept change.

You’ll be lucky if little Adolph makes it out of elementary school without getting his a** kicked- and now that I think about it-YOUR a** should be kicked for the horrible infamy you are placing on little Adolph.

“They need to accept a name. A name’s a name. The kid isn’t going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did,” he said.

A name’s a name? Oh really? Then why didn’t you name him: Cockadoodle-do, Susan, or Sonuva*****? What about the N word? How about you call him ‘Fire’? So the next time you shout his name in a crowded theater- we can arrest you.

You’re an idiot. You should be shot….and preferably by someone named Mother Teresa.

Call Me a Prude

Posted by redsatellite on March 10, 2008

What is going on in Deerfield, Illinois? I’d like to think I’m rather liberal when it comes to sex…BUT NOT THIS!

Parents in Deerfield, Ill., are upset that a local high school is using books in advanced English classes this spring that they say are laced with graphic sexual content, pervasive expletives and mockery of religion.Worse, the books – “Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes (Parts 1 & 2)” – are required reading for advanced placement English students at Deerfield High School, but a parents’ group wants them removed.

REQUIRED reading? Are you kidding me? Read the whole article…it’s very disturbing and….extremely explicit. Trust me, you’re not going to believe the dialogue. I’m sitting here with my jaw resting on the floor.

Things Learned From Being A Foster Parent

Posted by Mark on February 25, 2008

In doing some research for a client, I came across some life lessons. Being a foster parent is a special calling. Not everyone can do it, and those that can seldom do it for long.  All 19 can easily apply to one’s own children as well…

1. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing transformer underwear and a superman cape.   
2. It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 by 20 foot room.   
3. When you hear the toilet flush and the words, “Uh-oh,” it’s already too late.   
4. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.   
5. A six year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36 year old man says they can only do it in the movies.   
6. If you use a waterbed as home plate while wearing baseball shoes it does not leak – it explodes.   
7. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq foot house 4 inches deep.   
8. Some things will pass through the digestive tract of a four year old that you’d imagine would remain in him or her.   
9. Super glue is forever.   
10. TV and Videos can teach us many things we don’t want to know.   
11. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.   
12. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.   
13. DVD players do not eject peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.   
14. Always look in the oven before you turn it on.   
15. The fire department has at least a 5 minute response time.   
16. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earth worms dizzy.   
17. It will however make cats dizzy.   
18. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.   
19. The average dog can eat at least 20 homework assignments in a school year per child.
