Youth or adult national? If youth, "hide my face" would be my choice!

Tobacco

Does this violate the rule concerning tobacco use by the officials?


Green? Sounds like Skoal(TM).

Incredible.

Try odd or even - showing your finger(s) to one coach while the other guesses.

A can of tunafish would probably be okay. Maybe we should all start carrying a can of Charlie the Starkist tuna.

Why not have the two coaches play "Rock Paper Scissors", two out of three match??

Two team captains would be better - and probably fun (thinking little kids here).

Normally I flip an old silver dollar, but at a big SP tourney a few years ago I used a coin "token" I found in the parking lot when I arrived at the fields.

Apparently the usual application of this coin was to activate certain electronic audiovisual devices at a local entertainment establishment by the name of "Video Thrills."

The obverse of the coin portrayed a smiling young woman who looked like the Venus de Milo, except that she had arms. The reverse reminded one of the old Coppertone sun tan lotion billboard.

Every game in the tournament required a coin flip beforehand, and this unique novelty proved quite a hit with the players and managers. Remarkably, when making his call, every single person used the same slang terminology for "heads" and "tails."
