    Saw this on the Onion. Had to repost. It's absolutely perfect. :)

    The coach says that communication and working together as a team are the keys to success this season.

    Has a high school coach ever said at the beginning of the season, "I don't think we'll be very good." I guess they mask it behind the words "rebuilding year." But I wish one coach, one time, would just shoot it straight.
  4. I opened up expecting a good laugh as always and come to find out what makes it even better, it's a weekly that the paper I work for owns. My boss and I enjoyed it very much

    Big things are expected of the underclassmen.

    I had a coach say they'd suck but it was off the record.

    The only problem with trying this around here is that every year, the name "Megan" would be spelled different.

    If a coach ever shot straight like that, about 40 parents would make his life a living hell. Even a coach that doesn't expect to win a game has to be optimistic on the record.

    And there's not a good chance that he'd tell you anything different off the record for the fear that you'd go ahead and use it, anyway.

    Funny stuff, and a great reminder of why I don't miss it.

    Incidentally, if this is on the up-and-up, any trace of said story has been erased from the Rumford Falls Times website.

    But yes, there is a Rumford Falls Times, and yes, they do cover Mountain Valley girls' volleyball ...
