Football - Delayed

Our coach is an idiot. We show up, walk around trying to figure out which of the four fields we're playing on, only to encounter 8 other teams. No space for us.

The coach tries to figure it out and one of the other Dads talks to a few teams and figures out we're playing at noon. So 13 kids were out there early, with perhaps 10 parents. Not a great turn out and I wonder how many will come at noon and how many might show up after we leave and then not come back.

It's annoying to me, but disappointing to the kids and it makes the experience less enjoyable. I did talk to Delaney a bit and try to pump him up a little for next year. He's not necessarily thrilled and when I mentioned playing for the Hawks, he said he didn't want to play competitive. I tried to explain that I don't think he'll play much, but I like their organization and that it's good for him to learn to work with a team, something he's not getting much of this year.
