Nice story. I think that any of us who have coached their kids can relate. I coached my younger son for 5 years and we also had our ups and downs, but we had fun. You are usually harder on your own because you know what they can do.

Follow-up:

Last night, Gary's Lake Oswego team beat Oregon City by 2 points. Oregon City is ranked 1st in state, 5th in nation. This was something like the first time in 72 games that Oregon City lost to an in-state school and they had beaten Gary's team 20 straight times going back 10 years. They seem to win the state title virtually every year. Congrats to Gary and his girls.

9 of the last 12, to be exact.

Everybody's been saying that OC is beatable this year, but LO is the first to pull it off. I am such a fan of the underdog, and so often, the underdog can't get out from under. But today, the birds are singing, the sky is blue, God's in His heaven, all's right with the world, because Oregon City got beat. Little guys everywhere, take heart! There's hope in you yet! Oregon City got beat!

rainmaker,

I'm the Oregon City coach and you're never calling any of my games!

Seriously, it would be a big relief. Whenever I have one of their games, I find it very difficult to be objective. Of course, they usually win by so much that my little bias doesn't make any difference, but in a close game like this, it would matter. Don't quite know what I'll do when the time comes.

I admire your honesty and candidness. I think situations like this remind us of the significant authority we wield as sports officials and how integrity is paramount.

That said, based on what I've been able to learn of you from this forum, I feel confidant you would have no problems measuring up to that demand.
