This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

Saw this article and made me think. It's about a kid who could throw the ball 95 mph his senior year in high school. But the coach made him throw a lot of sliders, and had him throw way too many pitches, and then he ended up being hurt a lot. Neyer paints the High School coach as the bad guy, of course, and I don't disagree. But, I mean, for the greater glory of what? The coach wanted to win baseball games, the kid wants to play major league baseball. The millions of dollars are incidental, of course. Does the kid just want to play baseball, or does he want to win? What is more important? Or, when it comes right down to it, is either one important?

Man, I don't know what's come into me, but I just care less and less about baseball nowadays, and I don't doubt that law school is partly to blame. I wonder if I take Sports and the Law if I'll feel better or worse about it.

Who am I kidding? I'm only thinking of taking that class because the professor is way cool, other than the Cub fan thing. Not to say that the rest of my professors aren't cool, though! Um, yeah.
