Guard A1 and Center A2 have been chatting during a close game about A2 not seeing the ball enough. Last period, Game tied......A1 throws up an airball 3. Before the throw-in, A1 and A2 start to go at it. Fist and kicks are thrown. I hit them each with Flagrant T's.

Coach A goes crazy. Says that it is impossible to foul a member of your OWN Team. I see his point and say,

"OK....how about we split the difference and it's just 1 T?"

He buys off but now Coach B goes crazy and wants the 2 T's!
I see his point and say,

"Look....maybe I cut a bad deal. It should be your ball on the air-balled 3. And it's your ball after the T but by the Rules you just get it once. How about if I give you the ball twice and we call it all square?"

He says, "OK".

Now, it's back to Coach A who's upset about Team B getting the ball twice. I pull him aside and say to him,

"Don't worry. I'll call palming on Team A on their second pocession."

He's on board with that and we resume the game. Thank God, I read Donald Trump's book, "The Art of the Deal" before the season began.

What the head nurse's name on your floor? Do they know you're using the computer again?

The rules (somewhere, perhaps in a point-of-emphasis, forgive me, I don't have time to go looking) make it explicitly clear that it's appropriate to call an unsportsmanlike technical foul on a player for being verbally abusive to a member of his or her own team. I'd say wacking a member of your own team qualifies as abuse . . .

Uh hmmm, just so you know, this is a fairly family friendly chat board, if you know what I mean. I'm sure if you look around a bit out there you'll easily be able to locate several chat boards of the sort where they're interested in what you're wearing, and not wearing. If you know what I mean.

What in the heck does living in the US have to do with anything?
