MGoBoard, please recommend your favorite text on the topic of coaching/leadership philosophies. I volunteer coach youth (ages 5-7) sports and would like to instill a few ideals of growth, competition, sportmanship, etc. This is difficult if you yourself have a lot to learn on the subject! I could see recommendations in a few areas:
- Simplified stories for youths to read that demonstrate leadership, etc
- Reading for adults on the topic of teaching youth about leadership, competition, etc.
- General reading for adults on philosphies of leadership, competition, etc.
[EDIT - and here is a mostly compiled list. I am going to start with the first two books
- Brian McKormick's 'The 21st Century Basketball Practice'
- Inch and MIles was written for children and written BY John Wooden
- "The Score Takes Care of Itself: My Philosophy of Leadership" by Bill Walsh
- Work Rules' by Laszlo Bock (HR VP at Google
- Matt Christopher books
- The Power of Negative Thinking - Bob Knight
- "Knight" by Bobby Knight.
- "Tribal Leadership"
- "Wooden: A lifetime of observation and reflections on and off the court"
- Quiet Strength - Tony Dungy
- Blue Book and 'The Inner Game of Tennis' by John Wooden
- Managing Magnetball
- "Competitive Leadership: Twelve Principles for Success" By Brian Billick.
- "The Education of a Coach".
- "A Season of Life" by Jeffrey Marx
- The Basketball Philosophy of Pete Carril
summary - Verizon has added more flexibility (unless you really cut down on the channels to a very basic level, inconclusive as to whether this will save a subscriber money) to their TV package options and has unbundled EPSN/EPSN2. ABC/Disney says this violates their distribution contract with Verizon.
future - I expect this to end up in the courts. Bundling is what has driven up cable costs the last 15 years. Unbundling will cause individual channel costs to rise dramatically, and we will probably end up at a price that was very similar to where we started, for fewer channels. But, it at least gives consumers freedom/choice.
Piggybacking off of my thread from the other day on wild shit at sporting events, what are some crazy bar or restaurtant stories?
whether it's douchey service, fights or anything else. You have a story, I want to hear it.
mine: was at a Red Lobster once and a guy had a meltdown because they got his order wrong and he threw his plate of shrimp scampi against the wall, sending customers screaming/running while he continued to throw things. Police were called and he was arrested due to resisting arrest when he was trying to fight a bartender.

I was not as lucky as Nik, my first car was not a brand new Porsche. Mine was a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan mini-van - absolute chick magnet. What was your first car?
Its sunny, Spring is here, why not ? Testing some Brewdog Sink The Bismarck today. Bring it on.....
I know I posted this a few weeks ago but I just wanted to remind everyone that we are having a get-together for fans of the newly-forming AFC Ann Arbor tomorrow night at Conor O'Neill's. We'll be there around 8; if you can't make it right at 8pm feel free to come afterwards, I imagine we will all be drinking the night away. Stop in and say hi. Anyone is welcome to share their ideas for banners/chants, etc. We hope to see some of you there!
Edit: I also forgot to mention we will be in the private room they have. If you walk in the FRONT door, the room is to the right (behind where the bars are). If you can't find it just ask a server -- feel free to walk right on in, the door will be open.
Edit 1.1: Fixed the title you sarcastic, little....
