So I have to admit, I did think Captain referred to ships. Navy brat and all. Whoops.


“This is the big leagues! It doesn’t get much bigger than Sunday morning intramurals. We are a team. That means I am not playing for myself. I am playing for each and every one of you.

If someone is down, you need to pick them up like it’s Thursday night at the club. Reach out your hand and say, “Hey, there is no us without ‘u’.” That is what a teammate does. That is what we do.

We are not here to make friends with the other team. This is not Facebook. There are no friend requests. There are no embarrassing pictures from seven years ago that you forgot about. And there sure as hell aren’t any requests to play Farmville or Candy Crush.”
