Absolutely agree here.
I had a G-F whose kids played baseball and everyone who showed had to be in the batting order, yes a batting order 1 thru 12 or how ever many showed up! They were allowed ten fielders and rotated every inning! It was the DUMBEST THING I EVER WITNESSED in my life. So kids who showed up to every game and every practice were penalized because those who never showed for one practice or were late for every game got the same playing time.  :argh:

Son played baseball for 6 or 7 years. That was basically their rules but if you didn't show up for practice, you didn't play in the next game.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin
