Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

I'm not huge into baseball but the Cards are much more of a rival than the Cubs. Everything in ILRead More stinks and is a joke, the Cubbies haven't been rivals for years.

As always in baseball---it is about pitching after the All-star break. The Brewers have a longRead More history of having arms fail. This year is already showing signs of issues...and its early.

The shrine game has always been a good one for taking the kids to though.

I will gladly take, pay for, these Thursday tickets off your hands.

I'll keep that in mind, seriously. I know my wife and I won't be going and my brother, who getsRead More first dibs when I don't, lives in Chicago and is unlikely to take them. I'll let you know what happens.

Pewaukee Has Zero chance in this one. No overrated Watts Brothers around this time to help. RingoRead More throws for 5 more TDS, and Gdale D pitches a shutout. Put in on the board and win the W column. This is the year of the Cat !!!!

If Lacy can pound the ball down their throats I could care less how fat somebody thinks he is, weRead More have needed a beast like him for a long time. Now the defense won't know if we are going to run or pass on 3rd & 2.

Jim: After Bulaga's injury, I think they will use Lacy and even Franklin more, because youngerRead More linemen generally will have more early success run blocking. Glad to have Lacy; I got so sick of John Kuhn up the middle for no gain on 3rd and 1.

All of our village is so proud of our boys of summer. We enjoyed this game and the experience ofRead More being there as your triumphed. Our coach B Johnson - Three cheers for you and your coaching. None of our public officials could bother themselves to attend this worthy event. Instead our elected officials and their employees were safely ensconced in their offices "working" away as our boys of summer played on.

All of our village is so proud of our boys of summer. We enjoyed this game and the experience ofRead More being there today as you triumphed. Their coach B Johnson - Three cheers for you and your coaching. None of our public officials could bother themselves to attend this worthy event. Instead our elected officials and their employees were safely ensconced in their offices "working" away as our boys of summer played on in the game and championship they will of course take credit for.
Brinkman Field will look nothing like it does now once renovations, which are expected to be approved by the Village of Greendale on June 1, 2013, are completed in time for the 2014 season.

Those of us in our fair village praise the generous donation of our benefactor, our school districtRead More that is contributing money to the effort of our village leaders and our Homerun club. Our youth ballplayers will appreciate this work for generations.

What an absolute joke. The High School teams were forced to play all road games this season inRead More anticipation of this project, yet no one has lifted a shovel yet! What is going on? Who is in charge of this project? I can't imagine the baseball players, parents or donors of the project are real happy.
Fred Mullin August 7, 2013 at 07:24 am
Drip, drip, drip. This administration is truly in a (minor) league of its own. The district isRead More hemorrhaging talent, the budget isn't adding up and the tall guy hides in the dugout while the school board cheers from the bleachers.
