I should also mention that some friends brought me flowers and cake and we had Thai food for dinner at the place that has a gluten-free menu and I am full and happy and tired and going to bed.
This girls basketball team in California is having a worse day than me. Their coach was upset that they got a third seed in the regional tournament when he thought they deserved a first, so he threw a temperfit and said he refused to show up for the tournament, so the officials left them out of the tournament altogether. Here is a picture of their coach.
Yes, that's correct. His bad temper cost his team their spot in the regional post-season tournament where they probably would have done really well. So thank-you Coach Angry, for reminding me that competition and selfishness are two different things. Because of your bad behavior, your team learned a hard lesson. True, it is one they will never forget and there is value in a bad example, but still. It's a shame that they have to pay for your poor sportsmanship. You also said you probably wouldn't return as coach next year. I'm certain I'm not the only one who really hopes you don't.
