"Where pride still matters"

There are times in every coach's career that he asks, "why am I doing this?"  Sometimes the game of baseball can drive you crazy.  Sometimes it will break your heart.  During these occasions, it's good to take a step back and see the big picture.  The link below is probably the best article I have ever read about coaching.  It was written by New York Times columnist David Brooks for Men's Health Magazine a few years back.  It is a must read for any coach of any sport.  It's a piece that deserves to be read a couple times a year.

I hope you enjoy it.  Tell me what you think.
