Well the kids got together last night.
It’s clear that they just can’t play well together.
The former team captain just won’t accept that he can’t call the shots anymore.
It doesn’t help that he takes every opportunity to embarrass the new captain who is still learning to call the plays. Calling her coach a ventriloquist is just so third grade. It’s unbecoming of a group of sixth graders.
What was really embarrassing was when the former captain tried to fire the faculty adviser. The team’s eccentric field goal kicker (all kickers are eccentric) went off accusing the adviser of lying to the team about how many snack breaks they could have.
The new captain’s coach tried to calm the team by saying that they should give the JV squad as much support as possible and set an example for them to follow.
But the former captain persisted in criticizing the faculty advisor for benching his JV protégé and promoting the new kid to JV captain.
One of the new team members joined the coach in asking for calm. The team took a vote and the team decided to keep the current faculty advisor.
Then the other new team member said that they really needed to have some rules about how the faculty advisor could choose the JV squad in the future.
Finally the other new team member said the former captain should apologize to everybody for things he said about the team during recess. The old team captain said, “I’m rubber and you’re glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.”
There was a little more squabbling before they all went to the showers.
