|13 weeks 5 days ago||From a Parent||
We were involved with travel teams. As a parent, I was disturbed by the political side of things. Coaches from other teams trying to talk you into switching to their team the next year. Parents using their power and taking groups of kids to other teams becasue they don't like the way coach is playing their kids. There is a level of "Team" that has been lost. There are exceptions where it's like a unbreakable family. Parents don't pay for AAU or travel so that their kid can be Team Utility palyer so there is always someone who is upset. Side note, it definately interupts worship days depending on your religius practice.
Get the right system and coach and your child will distance themselves athletically. My daughter excelled when those around her were better. By default, she had to play harder and I really don't think you can teach that in drills or less than competition. Exposure comes after the age of 13 i would say where other outside of your team start tracking your child.
I would consider doing it, but it needs to be something the child really really wants. Forcing them burns out. Also agree with Dreisbach on asking about the organization, team and coach's philosophy and system. It must match how you raise & teach your child.

This what my choice is going to be. Anyone suggest the Silver or the Black over one or another?

His Legacy and especially this game will be told to my children and my children's children. That hoop must have looked 5 feet wide that night.
Thank You spike!

I was trying to keep track, but I don't think he missed one jump shot.

I really have a hard time thinking Peppers is going to go flying down the field on Special teams at 110% and make a highlight one on one tackle for the ages to get a sticker. He does it for the team and the love of the game.
In my business, I employ several young people and I have realilzed that they thrive on recognition from the one whom they work for, It fuels them to work harder. Personally, for this reason, I am in favor of the decals. As far as the helmet goes, I am split. I do know that I didn't hear a lot of complaining when Bo was puting them on in the day, and even if it was covered, it was still the greatest helmet in sports!

I'm 42, and I would have no problem acting a drunk 18-20 yr old watching a Michigan Football game.
There are some things that I recall being different
- Higher level of alcohol consumption.
- The freedom and willingness to show how much you have consumed
- Standing (wish the whole stadium were like this)
- Screaming (true fan)
- Lots more touching (positive experience if surounded by the female persuasion)
this is a generalization of my experience as an "old" guy sitting in the students section, not a description of every student.

Before this hat, I refused to wear anything other than the Block M on Blue.

This photo clears it up. What's cooler is that when I move my cursor up and down the thumnails to the left in Amazon, she kinda dances for me. Ha

Man, I wonder who negged every one of your posts?

|1 year 22 weeks ago||Being stupid because I am...||
But, all of your theories that I have read have been assuming "real air". Is it possible to inflate the balls with a gas different than "real air" that would react differently to a lower temp than the Colts balls did?
Just wondering if you intilectual types could help me out?

|2 years 8 weeks ago||But...||
I'll take 4 star or 5 star kids against other staffs before I would take 3 to 4's... That is what the worried fan is thinking. Then we'll complain when they are gone after their first year. Fans never happy

Always amazed me how that batter still kept his eye on the ball after hitting that feather pillow.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Getting Killed||
I voted too, but Bo is getting destroyed. Cmon Bo fans.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Balance will be key||
Last year in case you didn't notice, there was 0, ZERO deep threat. That hurt, all the skill position players including the TE's as good as they were. Keep in mind that if a DB doesn't respect deep plays, the box to run at gets that much smaller.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I have that same...||
feeling, bu tI have this reoccuring dream where that happens and THEN he jumps a routine ball thrown in the flat, and takes it to the house. Weird thing is that the other team is wearing different jerseys. Some are green and some are red and grey, but each player on the other team does have a shit stain on their arse.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Who's the last||
Who's the last player that is this talented? Really, he is so good at so many positions. When he settles into one, we are really going to see something special. Pile on the Talent!
