pat, wtea, 4/20, coop tour, earth day


pat summitt has left her job as head coach at the university
of tennessee
she was allowed to stay on this year as head coach after
coming forth with her diagnosis of alzheimers disease
if you watched any of the tennessee womens games you could
see that she was not the same
luckily she has been surrounded for years by great assistant
coaches who carried things this year

she will now be the emeritus coach of the womens team
and will no longer do the coaching of the team

i am on the same meds she is on and know just the side effects
of the medicine on sleep habits and on fatigue can interfere with
your day to day activities
it must have been tiring and stressful for her this year dealing with

hats off to the university of tennessee administration for taking care
of her into the future so she can continue to be a productive person

many dont get that chance
they get fired or are asked to resign
they just stay to long

congratulations to pat summitt on her new job
stay now as long as you can
womens basketball is better having you around

  1. AND the Day of Silence, a national youth movement bringing awareness to bullying, name-calling and harassment. Zero-Tolerance is the answer to establishing a school environment where all students feel safe and respected. Ironically, my best day of teaching.

  2. My wife she,
    It is my best day of teaching also. Thanks for supporting DOS and for being such a great advocate and mentor to all the kiddos who don't fit the mold. You and your husband he are great role models for all. This is also the 13th anniversary of Columbine. Tough day for many except Willie's followers. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Good friend she.

  3. My mother she..maybe all those kids are being quiet because they are celebrating 4:20 early. just a thought. ;)
