There are good and bad calls in every single game and sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesn't and the important thing is to get right back in there and work on it. When a good sport loses, they know that it's not about the umps or refs but about the fact that they were one play short. What I want my kids to learn is to play hard, play fair, don't be a sore loser (or winner) and no matter what happens, skip the excuses or the complaining and learn from it. In short, I want them to learn to be a good sport. Ironically enough, my son had done that classic "palms up, what was that" thing that kids sometimes do when they are called out on strikes a couple of innings before this incident. After getting him alone for a minute during the game, I asked him what he was doing. He said that he didn't think that the pitch was a strike. I told him that if he ever behaved disrespectfully like that to an umpire again, I would march on the field and pull him out of the game so fast that his head would spin. And that if he didn't believe me, then he should try me and see.
For obvious reasons, this week's video is the Donna Summer classic, "She Works Hard for the Money".
