Coach McGuirk

If you are unfamiliar with the cartoon Home Movies you are completely missing out. I have seasons 1-3 on DVD and will gladly lend them to you. It's hilarious.

Youth Soccer Coach Resigns Over 'Losing Is for Losers' E-Mail

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

SCITUATE, Mass. — The coach of a soccer team for 6- and 7-year-old girls resigned after receiving criticism for a season-opening e-mail sent to parents.

Michael Kinahan wrote in his resignation letter to the board of the Scituate Youth Soccer League that people failed to see the humor in his e-mail, in which he said "losing is for losers" and encouraged parents to feed their daughters "undercooked red meat."

Kinahan, who dubbed his team "Green Death," said the e-mail was meant to give parents a "chuckle."

League registrar Chris Park told the Patriot Ledger of Quincy that some parents understood the tone of the e-mail. Others did not, and complained.
