the young indian guy who helps run the little league where i coach my son's team got connected to one of the guys from million dollar arm, and somehow cooked up the idea to do a baseball camp for the league. they want to do an intensive five day camp after school M-F the week the league champeenship is scheduled for Saturday.
we have a very casual league where they play every Saturday, the kids don't take it seriously, and each team has a weeknight practice where if we're lucky half the kids show. most everybody sucks. and we're going to have these kids doing a hard ass camp 5 days in a row, and top two teams play the championship the next day? we have no idea if this kid, who washed out of the low level minors as a pitcher, knows how to coach anything, yet the two guys want him to run this boot camp type camp. for it to work financially we have to charge each kid what for here is a substantial amount, and the finances (which provide the million dollar arm guy with transport, lodging, and appearance fees) only work if half the league pays up, even though we've only got around 100 kids total, 15-20 of which are poor Indian kids who don't get charged anything.
FOOH. i had to be the turd in the punch bowl and nice point out how stupid this idea is, all the other coaches/people involved keep thanking me for saying what they were thinking but too chicken shit to say. looks like the Indian guy helping run the league is being marginalized and the amurican guy serving as commissioner (nice guy, former marine who went to Annapolis, someone you definitely don't want to fuck with) is trying to shift it to something reasonable.
You coin contrarian bro and say shit nonsense like this.
