Funny umpire insults

Now, we don’t recommend berating, slandering, abusing, insulting any game officials, so these should be taken tongue-in-cheek. But even the butt of one of these jokes should chuckle a little. Just like anyone, even umpires should have a sense of humor. Courtesy of Heckle Depot. We’ll have more later:

  • I didn’t know we were golfing today, I would have brought my clubs!
  • You drop more calls than AT&T
  • Did you star in “Weekend at Bernie’s”?
  • Hey blue, that call was a get outta here quick call!
  • I thought only horses slept standing up!
  • It’s against the law to make prank calls!
  • (Hold up cell phone) Is this your cell phone? Because it has three missed calls!

Are today’s parents turning kids off sports?

Our partners at PHIT America are making it their mission to get people up and active. So it makes sense that they sound the alarm when it comes to the decline in participation of children in sports. In this article they site a study that finds a direct correlation to the over-involvement of parents, what they term, “hyperparenting,” and kids quitting sports. This clearly leads to inactivity, increased obesity and other health problems and a less fit generation.

Congratulations to the champs!

Hat’s off, (and thrown onto the ice) to the 2014-2015 NHL Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks! This is their third win in six years, officially moving them into dynasty realm. The Stanley Cup playoffs are always one of our favorite events in all of sports, and this year’s tournament didn’t disappoint. From overtime thrillers to last-second goals, nothing beats the excitement of playoff hockey. We’re sad to see it go.

Roads to the World Series’ have begun

It is tournament time for each of the two largest youth baseball organizations. The Cal Ripken Baseball World Series and the Little League World Series are about a month away, but the local all-star teams that will make it there are about to throw their first pitch. You can follow the progress on the Little League side here, and on the Cal Ripken side here. Good luck and have a great time!

In the Bleachers for your Saturday

Have a great weekend from CoachDeck

We hope your weekend includes lots of fun sporting events with the kiddos! All-star games are starting and summer tournaments abound. Let’s be positive, supportive and encouraging parents. Remember, you can’t go back and do it again!

Cool idea for all-stars

The Little League in our community has done something pretty cool. They have made up yard signs, (kind of like those one might see advertising a political candidate) that read, “A (league name) All-Star Lives Here! Congratulations on an Exceptional Season!” Separating the two sentences is an illustration of an all-star cap. You see these all over the neighborhood and it not only has to be a source of pride for families and players, but it enhances the sense of community that Little League forms.
