Here is a good one for you guys.

DS and his JV middle school basketball team is scheduled to play in a 6 team tournament this weekend. The schedule was released last week and we were all set to go.

Yesterday we played the host in our regular league play and beat them. Today they redo the schedule to put the other team that beat them in league play in our pool and moved out the team they beat. I know as a host you always want to give your team the best shot at winning the tournament but to be so blatant in changing a schedule after you have released it is pretty low.

On one hand it makes me laugh but on the other I makes me a bit mad.

I hate that bush league crap. I quit playing in USTA tournaments as a kid because of stunts like this. I don't know what kind of authority you have up there but this needs to be brought up the ladder.

For the French/English thing, that really depends on where you are. Government documents are in both but many things are still in English only.

Well the US is smaller than Canada, so to us it is a smaller country.
Good point, and true. So, how about after you take away the 90% that's not habitable?

Actually the school that was moved in with us is the school where DW teaches. She was the one to call me and let me know. I know their coach is pretty upset about it, probably because we beat them as well and they have beaten the host. I'm just helping out with DS's team and middle school sports don't fall under the banner of my organization so they can do pretty much what they want. I'm sure they are going to hear about it from a few schools.

In my opinion there wouldn't have been any problems if they hadn't released the original schedule. The tournament doesn't mean anything in terms of seeding for district championships but this really makes then look petty.

I agree out makes them look petty. If I was coaching of seriously consider not doing this tournament next year.

Twenty-two degrees today with a feels like temp of eight. Not here of course, but in South Orange. Seventy-six here. Called the kid to rub it in a bit. "DAD, MY EARS HURT!" Finished classes so she will be hunkering down in the dorm. No running today.

Good bars though I am sure. Probably a lot like Wrigley. No idea when I will be up there yet but will keep you posted.

The hardest part was yesterday at the funeral. For the first time it really hit my DD's that their Grandfather was gone. Seeing their pain was difficult for me. We decided to forgo any other get togethers besides lunch at dads church. We just came home, watched a couple of movies and cuddled. We will all be ok.

From the bottom of our hearts we are truly grateful and we thank God for each and everyone of you.
Again, sorry for your loss. It is tough when kids experience losing someone close. Hugs to the girls from all of us.

Maybe you should buy your CEO a copy of "A Christmas Carol"? Throw another chunk of coal on the fire.

Yep, Fed has this one covered.

I just hope it gives that other team the incentive to step it up and embarass them.

I get what your saying. Especially since it is the home team making changes.

We usually see a lot of changes in our tournaments leading up to the start to try to balance out all the groups to keep it competitive. It's usually a bunch of changes and not really the home team looking to win. I guess you'll just have to beat the team they added to your schedule too/
