Published continually since 1998 -it was a Blog before there was such a word! Presenting news and views - often outrageous, always thought-provoking - on a wide variety of topics, usually related in some way to coaching, to leadership, to citizenship. Items cover coaching, football, football history, education, parenting, kids, other sports, leadership, patriotism - even, sometimes, my Double Wing!
flagFRIDAY,  OCTOBER 24,  2014"Where nothing is unspeakable, nothing is undoable."  Alexander Bickel, "The Morality of Consent"

*********** I know you won't believe this, knowing what you know about the mentality of NFL football players, but some of the more exhibitionistic among them have paid as much as $1,000 - to customize their shoes.

Surprise - there's not a center in the bunch.

Says a custom decorator named Marcus Rivero, who has done work for such NFL luminaries as DeSean Jackson, Reggie Bush, and Marshawn Lynch, the NFL's stuffy policy of insisting that players on the same team dress the same has created a business for him.

"It's really the only way they have left to express themselves," he told TMZ. "They can push the envelope with the cleats in ways they can't do with their uniform."


Meanwhile, the rest of us chumps have to settle for "expressing ourselves" in speech and in writing.
