@Mame,
Thanks - I am going to put together a thread on this topic so be on the outlook - my husband is a coach and recently experienced a really bad situation with a parent.

@Linkat,
I just read your other thread linky, but since I don't know anything about sports, I won't comment there.

But, it's beyond me that parents do that.

I guess I don't understand because I'm really not competitive. Oh, don't get me wrong, if I'm playing a party game, or some kind of game of skill, I like to do well. But mostly it's for the fun.
As far as who can run the fastest/farthest, play ball the best, I'm not even aware of what's going on.

Funny enough, I enjoy watching the olympics. I guess because I appreciate what it took them to get there.

@chai2,
Actually I do think I know where the mom is coming from - just her method wasn't the best (I'll add this to the other as well).

All she really wanted was the best for her little girl - she was trying to protect her and make sure she got her fair share. I get that. Believe me when my little one is playing and she is sitting on bench, I get a little ticked, but I understand why she is and realize she will get her turn.

The yelling and making a scene in front of everyone is the big issue.

Anyway.....

I'm waiting for some brave soul to come here and say "No, I don't exercise. Nuts to you."

Some have indicated they "occassionally" do this, or that.

What exactly does occassionaly mean to those people?

My goodness! Its just so much fun, having no children.
I don t have to put up with ANY of that, from either perspective.
I don 't even have to drive to the competitions!!!

If I had a kid, I deem it very unlikely that I 'd be willing to go
and watch this, knowing that success or failure in this has absolutely NO MEANING; all futile, no matter WHAT happens.

I've been an exercise fanatic all my life, used to teach a class. Now, there's so much work to do in our landscape work. That's my exercise, and I've grown such massive shoulders and back that it doesn't bother me anymore to lift those damn stones, carry them somewhere else. Talk about sweat!

Also, there's a pink bike I saw when I was visiting my son & family in Colorado. Big thing it is, with high 50's style seat. He (son) owns a bike and hike shop there. Don't know how much it would cost, but since I'm his mom it's only $189.

Maybe it was Thomas Jefferson. That was his favorite sport.

I had included if you think doing a jigsaw puzzle is exercise, that's fine.

Let's respect each others idea of what exercise is, ok?

@chai2,
I DO occasionally lift the remote control of my HDTV.
Then I do finger exercises.
Keep those finger muscles in shape.
