Yep, that's an old, funny "compliment". I used to have a coach back in h.s. who would enter the locker room and say "Hello, men! You too, Mike." He also used to say "That Mike...he might not be big, but he's slow, too."
Hope you had a good Christmas.
I enjoyed that Mike
Made me think of when I was in school
I had a good friend in school and him and I played on the softball team and football now and then , but we didnt play on the basketball team , though they always tried to get us too , probably because we both were a little taller than average
Everytime the basketball team would lose , our coach ( also teacher ) , would say.........." we might have won last nite , if we had more height......we need more height "
Then he would always look at me and my friend , and mention both our names , and say , " if those two would join the basketball team , it might make a differance "......then he would look at me and say......" but not Myers......he would rather smoke an ole ' camel non filter cig. , than play basketball
Funny thing was , whenever he would reach to write something on the blackboard in class......he always wore a dress jacket....and inside it was two hidden inside pockets....and in each inside pocket , was a pack of Winston Cig. ( which of course meant he smoked also )
Well , I finally quit the real cig. close to three years now , and only use an electronic cig. now and then
Yep.........coach would have been proud of me that I finally quit
He was a good teacher and a good coach.............God Bess Him
I miss him
Those were the days
