    Wealth is earned by the penny but squandered by the dollar.

    Never criticize a dumb question because you've probably asked your fair share. But more important to remember, it's much easier to correct a dumb question than it is to correct a dumb mistake.


    Other people’s opinions are not a substitute for thought.

    People won't remember what you say and people won't remember what you do. What people will remember is how you made them feel.

    Welcome back to the 1950's where you earned the honor, or sat on the sidelines.

    Saw this last night. Congratulations to the Keller folks for doing this and showing some common sense. The guys on WBAP said this was a "controversial decision". Seriously? NOT EVEN CLOSE! But you can bet some crybaby parent will squawk something about "fairness", whatever that is.

    The kids know how important these trophies are. When my youngest grandson got a participation trophy for soccer, his reaction was; Where's the snacks? What, no ice cream?
    When he won the Pine Box Derby in his Cub Scout pack, he was beaming with pride. These kids do know the difference.

    Both our kids have already thrown away their boxes of trophies from their childhood. It meant nothing to them, even the ones I know they worked hard for.

    Not bragging, but my oldest son excells in football and baseball and has won many hard earned trophies, such as MVP of tournaments and many championship trophies but he doesn't care for them because, even at 11, wonders why everyone got a trophy when they didn't play or win. The kids know the difference when the parents teach them there is a difference. If the parents act like their children deserve and should get one no matter what, those are the kids who grow up expecting everything to be given to them. Kudos to this league for doing this

    Too bad my kids are too old to learn from this.

    One year my son's baseball team got second place in the division and got the same trophies they did the year before when the finished in the middle of the pack.

    I like the idea of a T-Shirt for participating, but trophies go to the top dogs.

    About time.
