Wherein Karma, That Slumbering Dragon, Raises Its Serpentine Head and Casually Engulfs Me In Flames
Then I get two awkward phone calls letting me know that the teacher who had previously been doing conditioning with the team has decided that he wanted to try his hand at coaching. I am offered a non-paying assistant coach job that, given this other teacher's lack of experience would end up being a non-paying head coaching job without the title and authority. Thanks, but no thanks. Of course, I've already arranged for E4 to take over the 7th grade boys coaching duties and -- holy crap -- there's a talented, head-up, good footwork point guard and some decent size. Of course. Now I have no team to coach. I used to have two teams, but now I have zero teams. None. Not any. No teams at all.
You have to figure I had this coming: You can't critique and criticize charter schools ad nauseum and then try to coach one of their basketball teams.
