We may all live in a great big global community, but in my Blog, it's my world.

You know, the first few times something happens it's new, different, exciting, etc., but over time you get tired of seeing the same things done over, and over, and over again.  Especially when those things are fairly stupid celebrations.  Celebrations like the Gatorade(tm) or (rm) (or whatever stupid mark is needed) 'bath' or 'shower' that players and teams provide to their coaches.

The biggest hassle with those celebrations is that you have coaches that are getting doused with ice cold Gatorade, shocking their systems, and potentially causing them to get sick from the event.  You also have many older coaches, or coaches that are overweight and not in the best of health to begin with.  Covering them, and others who happen to be standing around them, with a big bucket of cold liquid is just plain stupid.

Want to celebrate your win?  Do it with class.  Do it with dignity.  Let you coach do the same.  Let him/her meet the other coach on the field or court, shake the other coach's hand and congratulate them on their season, then go stand behind your coach and pat them on the back for doing a great job leading your team to victory.

Much like touchdown celebrations.  Act like you've been there and like you know what you are doing, even if it's your first time there.  It reflects much better upon your program, and sets a much better example for others to follow.
