Outside the Lines: Pressure of coaching football

Wow. A coach had a mild heart attack. It must be so damaging to their health. I've never heard of anyone else in middle age having a mild heart attack.

Pressure is not knowing if you can make your next mortgage payment, not knowing if you will have a job the next day, or not knowing if you will have the money for your family's needs. I heard about this and just laughed. The way we look at sports is so skewed. Pressure, sheeesh. If it is so stressful then step down and take part in your children's lives living off the millions you made from that stressful job.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.

Pressure is staring down the muzzle flash of an AK-47 after an IED blew your AAV to pieces while listening to the screams of your injured friends. Knew a kid from the Columbus Marine reserves while I was at OSU, he was in the AAV that was blown to hell in Iraq back in '05 and was seriously wounded.

A job is a damn job, living on the edge of poverty, that is fucking pressure.

Coaching a football team, pressure? Nah, I think Ziner nailed it.



America needs some fucking perspective.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.
