“I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in gym, on the field, or in the pool. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a coach, I possess a tremendous power to make an athlete’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized.”
— Adaptation of Haim Ginott by Dr. Tom Crawford, USOC Coaching Division

The middle school teacher said, “From, such stupidity may I be spared. They sent him to me so unprepared.”
The primary teacher huffed, “Kindergarten blockheads all. They call that preparation? Why that is worse than
none at all.”
What kind of woman must the mother be?”
The mother said, “Poor helpless child. He’s not to blame. His father’s folks were just the same.”
Said the father at the end of the line,
“I doubt the rascal’s even mine.”
Steroid use is considered a form of cheating.
