Overland Park city government in controversy over favoritism on taxpayer-funded youth soccer fields – KC Star

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

The Star:

Instead, Overland Park officials struck a deal with the Blue Valley Soccer Club before the complex opened in 2009, giving the club a monopoly over most of the practice fields.

The verbal agreement allowed Blue Valley rights to nine of the 12 soccer fields for practice during the week, leaving about 20 clubs and their teams to fight over the remaining three fields.

In addition, Blue Valley gets a discount rate…

And once a team gets a practice time, it’s forever, said Mike LaPlante, the soccer complex manager, unless, of course, the team decides it no longer wants to practice there. That means Blue Valley will have the nine fields indefinitely…

Blue Valley doesn’t always use its nine fields, several coaches said. But if a team tries to use one of the empty fields, they are told to leave.

The 32 rules of playing touch football with your family on Thanksgiving – Jason Gay, WSJ

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

12. It’s okay to play with kids but don’t baby them. Just because your 7-year-old niece is playing quarterback doesn’t mean you can’t intercept her screen pass and run it back for a touchdown. She’s got to learn sometime not to throw into triple coverage.

13. The count is five “Mississippi.” And it’s a full four syllables—not a rushed “MISS-IPPI” and knocking grandpa to the ground.

16. No, you don’t get to be “permanent QB.” Not if you want anybody to like you.

19. There are only two plays you need for touch football: “Everybody Go Out” and “Everybody Go Deep.”

20. No, that running play never works. Ever.

30. Take it easy. You don’t want any injuries that can’t be treated with a bag of frozen peas.

32. When you think about it, there’s really only one rule for Thanksgiving touch football: Take your shoes off before going in the house, or Mom is going to kill you.
