Coach: Guys, practice today at 6:30, Field 22. Wear Grey.Sometimes kids joke around with me about missing practice, but that was primarily last year's team (so far). This particular exchange is dead on serious. I'll be watching for additional symptoms on the team pretty closely today. The last thing I need is a whole team with swine flu as I head into the last couple weeks before our first tournament.
Player: Coach, I can't make I have the swine flu.
