Remember all of the “reunion tours” that your favorite rock bands go on?
How about the McDonald’s Mcrib making it’s appearance one last time?
How about Coach Gordon back on the basketball sideline again as an assistant boy’s coach at Greene County?
All three of those situations above teach you to never say never. Tonight, my 30th basketball coaching season begins with our opening game.
I’ve decided to use this season and experience to fuel my daily writings for the next few months.
Education based athletics has so many lessons to teach us. Leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship (respect), resilience, to name a few. I’m sure we will experience them all and then some.
We’ll see where this journey takes us. I look forward to sharing thoughts with you linked to a sport and experience that has given so much to me already.
It’s the same game that will teach me, and hopefully you, some new lessons. Here is what it has taught me already.
1) Sometimes there are just some things you should do. Sure, you can talk yourself out of a lot of things but at the end of the day you know if you should or shouldn’t. If you should, then do it and figure it out from there.
2) You never know when you will have a chance to give back. When a moment is presented to you will you step into it? I didn’t right away but I’m glad now that I have.
I’m looking forward to seeing what this season has in store.
I’ll be cheering for you.
