Why I don't like everybody-gets-a-trophy leagues
It’s not because they ruin our youth and our society.
It’s not because they devalue true excellence.
It’s not because they are responsible for bailouts to the auto industry.
It’s not because they lead to killing sprees.
It’s because they take up a lot of space.
Even before my youngest gets in sports, I have bedrooms and drawers cluttered with sports participation trophies (with one more coming for my 6-year-old son’s T-ball closing ceremony next week). I’ve got a lot of sports parenting years to go — where am I going to put all this stuff?
