Post No. 101 is about junior tennis

Since I will embark upon my first season as a girls' high school tennis coach next spring, I found the following article to be of extremely high interest:
Girl ejected as dad tries to coach her through earpiece

Wellington, New Zealand — An 8-year-old girl was ejected from a junior tennis tournament on New Zealand's South Island when officials discovered she was wearing a radio earpiece to receive instructions from her father.

Tournament referee Rob Wilkinson said officials became suspicious because the match involving Ukranian-born Anastasiya Korzh featured a "heightened number of questioned calls."

Officials found the earpiece hidden under the girl's headband, linked by a cord to a receiver under her shirt, The Press newspaper reported.

Korzh's father said the earpiece was only being used to help the girl keep score in the under-10 tournament.

She was playing in her first tournament.

All Hail JPW

So, John Parker Wilson's mediocrity to this point finally earned him Preseason All-SEC Honors as Third Team QB. Although, he hasn't played like an All-SEC qb, his stats are not too far behind Second-Teamer Matthew Stafford, who some people think is a dark horse in the Heisman Trophy sweepstakes. So, go figure. I think this could be John Parker's Chris Leak year, meaning he can make all Bama fans think twice about bad-mouthing him for the past two years. On the other hand, it could be his Reggie Ball year, meaning that he could finish his career at Bama having never beaten his major rival. Hopefully, he'll manage the game and win a few more games this season, rather than toss costly picks or commit fumbles that result in losses.

Other Bama players making the Preseason All-SEC team were gargantuan left tackle and future top-five draft pick Andre Smith ( 1st team, duh), underrated db Rashad Johnson (2nd team), speedy rb Terry Grant (3rd team), linebacker Rolando McClain (2nd team), senior center Antoine Caldwell (2nd team),return specialist, db Javier Arenas (2nd team, though I would take him over Brandon James any day), and kicker Leigh Tiffin (3rd team).

Thanks to j.r. suicide for the nod as well as for sending me the link, for I couldn't find the shirt last night. Hilarious!

Tebow Wears Crocs!

Forget any stupid jorts comments for the upcoming football season. His Manliness himself is pictured here breaking the cardinal rule of Studliness by wearing crocs. I guess he's preparing for his future career as a stay-at-home dad. Tebow? Crocs? Jeesh! I mean I can just envision this pic being blown up to actual size to serve as inspiration for The Gators opponents this season. All that opposing coaches have to say is, "I mean do you want to be remembered as the huy who was flattened by the dude who wore crocs?"

Actually, I'm pretty sure every UF male fan is rocking crocs with jorts this weekend.
