More (great) stuff for Father’s Day

Yesterday, we shared Bill Plaschke’s great article about volunteer dad coaches in honor of Father’s day. The same paper also employs one of our favorite columnists, Chris Erskine and he wrote a tear-jerker that we’d love you to read while you think about your own families. Happy Father’s Day.

Cubs align the stars

Another fantastic article by the Los Angeles Times’ Chris Erskine. Whether or not you’re a Cubs fan or even a baseball fan, you’ll love this read.

Maybe we will need a SurfDeck

There are many benefits to surfing that are clearly apparent. But one of our favorite columnists, Chris Erskine of the L.A. Times writes about how it is catching on as a legitimately-sanctioned sport in Southern California high schools. And his take is amusing and thought-provoking. The title, No screaming parents? And you call surfing a sport? should be enough to peak  your interest. Very worthwhile read for parents of young athletes, even if you live in Nebraska.

Welcome to the winner’s circle

In honor of tomorrow’s “Granddaddy of Them All” horse race, the Kentucky Derby, we bring you the ever-whimsical Chris Erskine from the Los Angeles Times, who tells you not only how he bought himself a race horse for $3000.00, but how you can do it too.

Chris Erskine on Superbowl 50

We can always count on the Los Angeles Times’ Chris Erskine for an incisive wit that is more truth than parody. Enjoy his take on the upcoming “Big Game”.

Welcome back, hockey and Chris Erskine

We’re big fans of both the NHL, (yes, we’re working on our CoachDeck for hockey) and LA Times’ writer, Chris Erskine. For your Friday, enjoy another of his whimsical articles and let’s drop the puck!

Tommy John and son

The L.A. Times’ Chris Erskine has delivered another strike this morning with his article about the man for whom a surgery that has resurrected thousands of baseball careers was named, and his son. The two of them are crusading to spread the word about pitching injuries, especially in young arms. Parents, might want to read this.

Chris Erskine on Sumo

Another enjoyable and humorous article from the L.A. Times’ Chris Erskine. This one, not on a topic we usually cover. But who knows, maybe the future holds a CoachDeck for Sumo Wrestling!

May 4, 2015 – Another winner from Erskine

We love the Los Angeles Times’ Chris Erskine and we love youth baseball. That’s why we particularly love his latest piece, In the Ninth Inning of a Joyful Baseball Season. Its guaranteed to make you chuckle, and you may tear up a bit at the end. Just like coaching youth baseball.

How crazy are we about our kids’ sports?

That’s what the L.A. Times’ Chris Erskine wants to know. He’s written another humorous but thought-provoking column that you’ll enjoy.
