What a team is?'

'Yes, coach', replied the little boy.

'Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?'

The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

'So,' the coach continued, 'I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a pecker-head, dickhead or asshole. Do you understand all that?'

Again, the little boy nodded in the affirmative.

The coach continued, 'And when I take you out of the game so that another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach a dumb ass or shithead is it?'

'No, coach.'
