“Hey, all our GC FANS…”

February 03, 2017

“So what’s in our stands?”...Hopefully, respectful fans.  As I sit in the stands during ballgames (of which there have been plenty over the years), it is interesting to watch the fans and hear the verbal messages sent out. I have come to realize the huge impact that those messages have on the players, coaches, other fans, and most importantly...our children.  There are times of frustration when our team is not performing up to their potential; times of excitement when the teams experience success; and those times when our emotions flow out through our mouths.  It has been through moments of reflection that I became aware of the intense power that positive actions have on others.  My favorite book reminds me that the tongue is very difficult to tame, and I am constantly trying to stuff negative words back into my mouth.  Yet, when positive words of encouragement are used, there seems to be a peace that abounds.  Therefore, I am sharing an inspiring poem that I hope will help us all reflect on the question “So what’s in our stands?”


“Little Eyes Upon You”


There are little eyes upon you, and they’re watching night and day.

There are little ears that quickly take in every word you say.

There are little hands all eager to do anything you do;

And a little child who’s dreaming of the day they’ll be like you.

You’re the little child’s idol, you’re the wisest of the wise.

In their little mind about you...no suspicions ever rise.

You are setting an example, every day, in all you do;

For the little child who’s waiting, to grow up to be just like you.

The next time you are tempted to say something negative towards the students or officials, replace it with something positive.  For example-- You feel like yelling, “You can’t even get a  rebound!!!”  Replace it with “Block out and go up strong.  You can do this!”


“So what’s in our stands?”   Positive and respectful fans!!  See you at the game.
