The Princess and I went to see the Ports play. Good fun – they lost to the Nuts but still –
We had a blast and Banner Island Ball Park is a great place to see a ball game. But during the game someone behind us was shouting at the pitcher….
“You’re aiming! Don’t aim! Just throw it!!”
What does that even mean?! Anyway – I was instantly transported back to little league…I can remember standing at the plate and having my coach shout things like:
- “Come on now…just make contact.”
Well, I fouled it off, coach….now what?
- “Okay – Just straighten it out now”
I understand they’re just words of encouragement and support…but play along here:
Tell us YOUR worthless coaching advice.
What are the things your coach – parents or just randoms stands used to shout at you. Or maybe your child plays sports…what instructions do you give from the stands?
