Guilty Confession - 05/20/14

  I must confess, I've got a thing for my son's baseball coach.  He's tall, handsome, athletic, a great pitcher and a former college ball player.  He's also my husband.
  I love watching him coach.  We made it to the semi finals after an exciting win last night and I'm convinced it's due in large part to his coaching philosophy.  Yes, these boys have raw talent...a lot of it... but their coach is more focused on having fun and teaching the fundamentals at this age than he is on making sure they're scholarship ready at age 8. 
  We're not the underdogs by any stretch of the imagination, but we aren't #1 either.  We're somewhere in the healthy middle.   So,  our coach made his mantra known before game one yesterday.  He told the boys--- go out there and 'shock the world.'  And of course, have fun doing it.  
   Semifinals are tonight.  Win or lose, our boys have learned an immeasurable amount about baseball and life from a man of integrity.

POT IN DC

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Pot is still legal in the nation's capital -- but not in private clubs. The Washington D.C. Council has passed emergency legislation to ban weed in clubs. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the council agreed that the bill was needed to clarify the new legalization law. Pot became legal in Washington last week, following a voter-passed initiative in November. But pot use is only legal for adults in their homes. Public use and selling marijuana are still legal no-no's. The council action adds private clubs to the list of locations where it remains illegal to fire up a joint.

TEXAS-MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A tea party-backed Texas lawmaker wants to make pot legal in the Lone Star State. Republican state Representative David Simpson says it's time to "reframe" the marijuana discussion. Simpson says his devout Christian beliefs are behind his call for legal pot. Simpson says -- quote -- "God did not make a mistake when he made marijuana that the government needs to fix."

PET WALKER-MISSING DOG

NEW YORK (AP) -- It's a sweet reward for the return of Sugar. A New York dog owner is offering ten-grand for Sugar, his 63-pound pit bull mix. Morgan Bogle was away on business February 23, when a neighbor called to say the dog walker was acting strangely and Sugar was nowhere in sight. Now, there's a "find Sugar" movement on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites. Supporters have plastered posters around Bogle's East Village neighborhood and beyond. A friend of the owner says the missing Sugar is sweet, loving and cuddly.

BIRTHDAY BREAKFAST REFUND

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- It's a restaurant breakfast for seven cents. But Joseph Nelson didn't have to pay, he got seven cents from the Belmont Hall and Restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire. The eatery has a policy of giving birthday discounts, a percentage taken off the bill based on age. Nelson celebrated his 101st birthday there Monday. At that age, the restaurant owed him money. Nelson had scrambled eggs and ham, topped off with a piece of chocolate cake. He tells WMUR-TV he never thought he'd live this long.
