Everyone's a Coach! Or Doug has the Patience of Job!

My friend, Deja, sent me this in an email today. It's too good to keep to myself. Thank you, Doug, for your patience....we'll try to keep him off the bench from now on. ::snort:: While we're on basketball, please pray for Jared (14) knee. Not sure if it's just sore or needs to be seen...and you know I'm LEAVING - right? Peace, Darshia's praying that I have peace. I don't much like leaving my babies at home, y'all. LOL

Deja's Words:

Doug told me about the intense game with Abilene. Mike and the kids were sitting right behind the bench. With the players around him, Doug would write out a play on his clipboard for them. When the players would go back out on the court, Alex would come and sit next to Doug...

"What are you writing?"

"Plays for the guys so they know what to do."

"You know what I think they should do? {licks his lips} I think you should tell them to go out, run around and around in circles until the other team gets tired of it and quits."

Back to the peanut gallery.

Doug thinks to himself, "I'm trying to keep my kids from getting crushed and Alex is helping out by offering his 2 cents."

He was really humored by it all.

I was really , really , really humored by it all."

Reliving this and the "I'm going to be your boss" comment, Doug and I were laughing so hard that we were crying last night.
