"Yes, coach", replied the little boy.
"Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?"
The little boy nodded in the affirmative.
"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't
argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a pecker-head, dickhead or asshole.
Do you understand all that?"
Again, the little boy nodded in the affirmative.
The coach continued, "And when I take you out of the game so that another boy gets a
chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach a dumb ass or shithead is it?"
"Good", said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother!"
