“All that yelling doesn’t do any good,” my son informed me as we drove home after a particularly animated display of such leadership. “Half the time, we can’t hear you. And you never played the game yourself, so you have no idea how hard it is to do what you’re telling us to do.” The kid in the blond bowl haircut was eight years old at the time.  -excerpt from Jim Haner's SOCCERHEAD
