Dreaming with My Eyes Open
Thursday, March 24, 2005
Sorry, Just text today. There are a few things going on that I want to write. First, a family thing. My cousin/sister Brandy is now only a cousin. To make matters worse, she is making false accusations against my father. To our family this is a very big deal. Yes, my father is a big guy. However, if you know him, you would know that he respects women, and would never hurt family. Which means Brandy is telling some of the worst lies she ever has.
Other than that, I've been working my butt off trying to get everything working properly and solidly at IPTech. Along with Designing sites and doing consulting.
Lastly, I heard on the radio that some high-schools in California have banned handshakes after soccer games. Having played soccer when I was younger this really makes me mad. I always thought that the shaking of hands to be nice. It shows respect for your opponent and a battle well fought. They have banned it because of brawls, and poor sportsmanship. I think that banning it is the worse thing to do. That sends a message that one should not have respect for their opponent. It is a hard but true lesson that even though a person is your enemy in the field of battle, that they are still a person, and deserve treatment as such. My solution, if a person is breaking the rules/displaying poor sportsmanship, do not allow them to play. Kick them off the team. Maybe give them a warning or something of the sort first. Truthfully, who would want to play against someone who cannot even have the decency to shake hands. Maybe I'm old fashioned but I believe in respecting others. Just my 2 cents I guess.
