    Stupid Hed of the Day (in my hometown paper, no less):

    Home-school boys’ team coached by women

    Surprisingly(?) several folks have told them that women shouldn’t coach a boys team.

    OMG, we can’t have young men learning how to accept women as leaders or worse *gasp* role models. Quick, somebody “Voyagerize” it before its too late!

    That is so sorry. I have a cousin who was really treated shamefully when she coached a boy’s basketball team.

    We played (and beat) a team this year that was coached by a man and a women. The women appeared to be the assistant, but she was a far more competent coach than the guy who spent the entire game screaming at the kids from the sideline.

    Prior to the game I was a little worried because she was talking some very good fundamental basketball with the kids.

    After the game, my son commented that he wouldn’t want to be on that team after a loss.
