Three cheers for Footlocker and Mark P!!!

I was doing a freshman girls game a couple of weeks ago. It seems to me that the fathers were coaching their girls from the stands. I asked the coach of the team after the game, "How can your school afford all the extra coaches?"

My masters thesis was all about fathers' basketball background and anxiety in their daughters. My hunch was correct: The kids (HS and College female basketball players) who exhibited the highest anxiety before the game had fathers who had the lowest level of playing experience when they grew up. This is what you call an "aha" moment.
