        *PRECISELY*!!!! Does this seem a mite hypocritical to anyone? It does to me!

        No two ways about it! And let me tell you, having been (and still am) a
youth athletics coach & manager (boys' baseball / girls'
softball)........while I am encouraged at hearing more of my players
mentioning "church" (as in attending), I was stunned at how many players
I've heard over the course of 7, or 8 seasons, mention that they'd never
seen the inside of any church at all. When I managed a boys 7& 8 year-old
league, we had a tradition of joining in a quick, but heartfelt prayer
prior to the first pitch of each game. I spent two years as coach and two
more as manager of the same team - we never had one parental complaint
about prayer in those four seasons. I know I left the team in good hands,
for my successor was an assistant who was very spiritually-driven.

        Preach on, darlin'! The squeaky wheel gets the grease! Doug know about
things mechanical. Am I right, Dougie?
