  2. Perfect night for a Shad Out. Wear your black gear to show your support for a coaching change.

    WB adults silence (except in private) is deafening and seen as acceptance of the only thing holding the program down, the HC.

    Is that because nobody wants him or is the pay scale for coaches in Blount Co just that good??  

    Lets make a story up that'll help you understand.

    A few years back in a far away land was a Ferrari dealership. The Sales Manager could do no wrong. Sales were off the charts. Sales ability mattered not. He was selling Ferrari's for shadsake. Things were going along swimmingly until whispers and rumors caused an audit of the company books. As Law Enforcement dialed in the Sales Manager quickly left the area. No hard feelings by the dealership and stock holders the problem was gone.

    Before long the Sales Manager interviewed at a new dealership. They sold Yugo's and Daewoo's. The Manager convinced the CEO he could turn them into a powerhouse dealership in a very few years. The CEO listened as he sipped a Cupp of coffee. He knew several of the other applicants but was  mesmerized by the Ferrari salesmans promises of the future and dreamt of the glory and adulation that would come his way for making such an astute hire.

    Several years have passed since that day and the results are abysmal. The CEO has painted himself into a corner by his inaction and failure to take the reins and restore order. The dealership is now the town joke and all who know the management know them as weak and ineffective as they watch their key employees leave for other dealerships.

    The Sales Manager sees the writing on the wall again and wishes to use his charlatan skills to dupe another dealership but alas the word is out and he finds nobody ready to entertain him or his services.

    Did that help GWAVE1?

    An open letter to all the dads with current or future ballplayers:

      

     Gentlemen,

     YOU are the CEO of Your Son Inc. This position bestows on YOU an enormous weight and burden. There is no one to help you with your decisions, YOU are an island. The decisions YOU make will be part of the formation of YOUR son for the rest of his life. YOU are the wind in his sails YOU are his navigator most importantly YOU are his rudder to steer him in calm seas and gales as well. He is blessed with all the knowledge YOU have shared with him. His heart and mind are strong and his eyes are clear. He looks up to YOU and observes and stores away to the tiniest detail of YOUR actions. He will certainly be the man YOU form him to be.  He has generally only four years of High School eligibility. As the CEO of Your Son Inc. YOU MUST guide him YOU MUST put him in the best situation to be successful! Anything less is abject failure. If YOU decide to stay in an abysmal situation then throw away your scabbard and stay and FIGHT for him to your last breath. If YOU decide to journey to a different land, run don't walk. They're are great adventures to be experienced on the other side of the mountain. YOUR young warrior will be welcomed by the army there.

     The sand in the hour glass ebbs away even as YOU read this. Make haste make a plan. Make the decision that ensures YOUR son, YOUR flesh and blood the best opportunity to be successful. Listen not to the fools that would call YOU a coward. Remember, The weak and the timid will stay back and defend the past while the brave and aggressive charge headlong into the future.

     

    I wrote this post some moons back on another thread. It is relevant here as well I feel.  Hope this helps with YOUR decision.

  5. RUMORS FROM THE MARYVILLE METRO AREA

     

    * Shad is negotiating for a position as Night Assistant Manager at Happy Wang's Chinese Massage Parlor.

     

    * Passiveaggressive  is confused with all the pressure on Opiate producers and would like his Congressman to have the pharmaceutical companies quit making diuretics because it creates more work cleaning the urinals.

     

    * Maryville H.S. will schedule a out of state nationally ranked H.S. team next season from Cali, Tx or Fl. Afterwards will hire a damage control team formally used by Hillary Clinton to explain the loss. 

     

    * Maryville coaching staff will appear on 60 minutes to explain how with so many State Championships so few of former players end up on Division 1 teams and of those who do never make an NFL roster.

     

    * The Glory Club of overweight 30+ year olds that still wear their State Champs ring will be meeting at Bubba & Pearls Buffet Thursday night to reminisce about the glory days and discuss Gastric Bypass.

     

    * Rebelwoman will hold cotillion classes and the art of fine dining manners at the VFW on Hobbs Rd in Alcoa she requests attendees wear their best bib overalls and wear deodorant.

     

    * Greyrider will star in the Community Theater Actors Guild in the stage version of Broke Back Mountain. He will tell people "I just can't quit you" for months afterwards.

     

    I don't like repeating rumors so you better listen closely the first time. More as my sources report in.

  6. If you were reading the Professional Bio's of the following:

    Brain Surgeon

    Weather Forecaster 

    Attorney

    Chef

    Plumber

    Accountant

    Car Mechanic

    Interpreter 

    Surveyor 

    Airline Pilot

    Home Builder

    Veterinarian 

    Investment Broker

    Tattooist 

    Cancer Doctor

    Barber

    Optometrist 

    Pharmacist

    Would you settle for one of these professionals that in the last 3 years has had a success rate of 16%? I didn't think so so why do you settle for a Head Football Coach to mismanage your ball players for 4 years? Why haven't you approached the AD or Principal? Why do you whisper and talk trash in the stands but are silent in their presence?

    Remember Gov Nation

    The future belongs to the strong and aggressive and the weak and timid will stay behind and guard the past.
