Mandatory Drinking...

There was a mandatory meeting for the football parents tonight.

The meeting was mandated by the OHSAA and had an agenda that included us watching an instructional film...


We have known for a couple of weeks that this was happening...we just did not know when...OHSAA took longer than expected to get the film produced and delivered.


Too bad they did not take the whole season...


Rumors were flying about the content. Most of the rumors had the film graphically displaying the dangers of the game....steroid induced heart explosions, neck stingers causing uncontrolled flailing limbs followed by total paralysis; broken necks and backs; femurs protruding everywhere...


The rumors were wrong...mostly...


There was a short clip on heat stroke and a message to athletes, coaches, parents, and fans:

The best prevention is to drink, even when you are not thirsty.
No problem here...

Let's start now...see ya at Croagh Patrick's.

Count me in. I'd hate to be the weak link in this chain.

I'm in! It should only take me about 5 hours to drive to Croagh Patrick's. Will there be any Killians left by the time I get there?

Thanks Rick and Paula. I knew I could count on you two:)
I will try to save a Killians or 2 til you get here Paula, but no promises:)

My son plays hockey, and I've decided the reason most parents and coaches like the sport is because it gives them an excuse to get shit-faced on a regular basis. Youth sports isn't about sports, it's about drinking.

I think you are on to something there, Mike:)
