A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.”   —   John Wooden

(It would’ve been nice if guys like Woody Hayes and Bobby Knight had paid heed to this quote!  There have been plenty of other abusive jerk coaches, but those two guys really stand out in my memory.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Wow.  The “Wizard of Westwood” was also a wordsmith wizard!  I remember those UCLA teams when I was just a kid.  There was no need for March Madness in those days.  Just engrave another trophy to the Bruins!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
