[quote]If this is from a failed drug test he will have a hard time getting recruits.[/quote] I just don't get the allure of drugs (mostly weed) to these young guys. They have athleticism and, in turn, access to girls that others just don't. Is it really that hard to just drink alcohol occasiona...

[quote]I agree on the porch. It was modeled after a lot of old parks. I love that feel. [/quote] Other new parks were able to go retro without obstructed views. Also, the location and heat are minuses - retractable roofs just make sense in such climates for summer sports......

re: Youth Coaches - Cutting a Player - SwatMitchell
[quote]Here's how I handled it. I coached youth baseball for 16 seasons. The first thing you do is you send an e-mail to the parents and you let them know that you're wiping the roster clean and you're holding tryouts for the next season. I did this going from 11-12 level to 13-14 level, because ...

New Austin Alt Station - 105.3 The Fringe - SwatMitchell
I just stumbled across this station this week and have been streaming it at the office. Alt variety, some going way back, similar to old KGSR (for those familiar), but much better and more breadth than I've been able to get with Pandora. It has relatively few commercials, check their song histor...
