re: Shooter reported at Texas' Santa Fe High School: At least 9 dead - TROLA

[quote]Here's a question for discussion. Do you think trying to eliminate guns will stop bad people from using them? [/quote] Admitting we have a problem and thinking we shoul try to solve it doesn’t inherently mean... ban guns. We have a societal problem and we need to look for answers...

[quote]the rule needs to be more clear... Have it where a pitcher can't start an inning after a certain number, not a batter [/quote] Thats the best way to do this. Bump the number down to 110-115 to start an inning and let it play out. ...

re: Cobra Kai discussion thread (SPOILERS) - TROLA
I loved the series and cant wait till the get to season 2. The only nit picky thing for me is the puniness of the participates. Take for example Hawk.. The 80's would get full grown men to play 16-18 year olds. I get he's part of the down trodden crew but they couldve easily gotten someone more ph...

Work the tee and transition into side toss and eventually front toss.. teach keeping hands inside to avoid casting the bat.. when he gets to games, tell him just to swing and not think.. the biggest issue with kids in games is to much info being thrown at them, leading to overthinking..
