Agree on short/ever-changing drills. If parents can help, divide and conquer so that even if you can't run stations, there will be two (or more) sets of the same drills/games going on at the same time instead of standing and watching. Have them learn a clap or chant so that when you (or a coach/parent) does it, it means: [everybody do this, gather up, and now listen]. Try to make the baseball/t-ball drills into something involving an animal (alligator for fielding ball with two hands), cartoons, whatever is popular with the age group - kids respond to vastly different things, but will join in and follow if it is fun/silly (for a few minutes, anyway).

Good luck!

Fearless prediction: There will be scoring plays in the next two years that will take me 5+ years to fully understand.

Not gonna lie: Love where you're going with this.

In the spirit of coincidence, fate, superstition, funny bounces, inches, and a lot of other whatnot - let's take it one game at a time?

Initial attempt defeated by YouTube user.

The first 10-20 seconds speak for themselves; the remaining 2+ minutes require serious fandom or really serious drugs...

I'm not opposed to ambiguity over closure (see: Sopranos and Mad Men). However, the way Six Feet Under wrapped things up is tough to disagree with.

Anyone watch the 30 for 30 series?

This game - even with clunkiness - showed stirrings of a new "winning time." And Reggie Miller (recently dethroned by Steph Curry for playoff 3PGs) is calling games for TNT.

Just sayin'...

Bogarting QBs is Phase I.

Phase II: All your skill players are belong to us.

Seconding the USS Arizona Memorial. I visited Hawaii as an idiot teenager and even I appreciated the profound reverence (and silence) that the memorial inspires.

As for the rest - it was hard to not feel completely relaxed at all turns. One day, we rented a car and drove around the island and just kept getting out and checking out the amazing sights, cafes, etc.

P.S. Congrats!
