Youth Sports: On Every Team There's One Kid Who Wears Jeans

According to Sports Pickle, a sports humor, satire and parody site, there are certain types of kids that you can expect to find on every boys youth sports team. There's a lot of truth in this humorous post called The 7 Kids on Every Sports Team. Check it out it's worth it.

#1 The Coach's Son
#2 The Kid Who Hit Puberty Early
#3 The Rich Kid
#4 The Kid Who Only Wears Jeans
#5 The Girl (My wife was one)
#6 The Weird Kid
#7 The Black Kid

The Main Point

When I was 8 years old, I batted against Sally Stokes while wearing ToughSkin jeans. I remember this vividly because I was playing in the era before Billy Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the battle of the sexes in 1973.  Had Billy Jean beaten Bobby in 1971, I may not have been as nervous waiting on deck to be the next victim of the hard throwing girl. John, the batter before me, struck out. I remember feeling glad. I didn't want to be the only one to strike out against Sally. In the batter's box, I remember my legs shaking. I remember getting 2 strikes while my heart beat out of my chest. Luckily, I grounded out to the shortstop. I remember my first homer vividly and I remember facing Sally. The other ABs are a blur.

  1. Too funny! I had a kid in jeans the other night. When I was a kid, that's what we played in all the time. I even had a pair of navy blue cords that matched my jersey!

  2. Every sports lover wants an affordable, high quality gear that they can rely on for years to come. Nothing could be worse than spending several hundred dollars on a model that you just don’t like. To make Humber Sportmatters more complicated, there’s no way to take any prospective sports gear out for a test drive when you’re buying off the internet.

  3. If your sports surface becomes contaminated with moss and algae, it can be a nightmare to remove it and restore the surfacing back to its original quality. This is why Sports and Safety Surfaces offer chemical treatments which prevent the growth of moss and algae and keep your sports pitch or court clear from any contaminations which could cause damage.
