    While recently looking into doing some youth-league coaching in Knox County, I was pleased to note that they placed a tremendous emphasis on the Six Pillars of Sportsmanship approach. Essentially, it is intended to teach kids about concepts that are pertinent to their competing in a sport, but which also have larger life applications (trustworthiness, respect, etc.). But then I noticed something on the official forms that gave me pause.

    See if you can spot my area of concern, and that which I don't think I could consent:

    Here's a link to the actual website, for those who my be wondering if this is a joke (it's not): http://www.knoxcounty.org/parks/pdfs/coachesmanual.pdf

    P.S. - Yes, I sent a nice "heads-up" note to the site admin.

    Donovan McNabb a caring teammate? Ask T.O. how he feels about that.

    Ugh. Also, did you cut it off or are there really only five compomnents of the Six Pillars.

    There's a swiperboy lyric in there somewhere.

    The Ken Sparks one is a close second for the Ridiculousness Award that Bruce won in this article.

    Obviously the Pearl one is outdated.

    Dooz -
    Youth football. I don't know enough about either soccer or baseball to contribute.

    I've also thought about refereeing some games, but won't for fear of ejecting about 92% of all parents.

    A penchant for ejecting/banning people? Sounds like a requisite skill to be a message board mod. Haha.

    Using Pearl and Wooden as examples of abiding by the rules is like using Bill Clinton and Eliot Spitzer as paragons of marital fidelity.

    Its the easiest money you'll ever make. I have never done football but I've umped 5-12 year old baseball for the past 3 years and made the hell out of money. One of my teachers from high school wanted me to get into doing high school and maybe college umping, I may try it in the future when I'm out of college and the military.
