At one point during a game, the frustrated coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" "What good sportsmanship 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 the umpire, or tell him he is blind or yell at him to get a new pair of glasses. 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 a dumb decision or that the coach is a complete idiot is it?”

"No, coach."

"Good", said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your Grandmother.”
