Shoot the Ball, Not the Gun!

Have I told my blog readers that I’m coaching my 6 year olds U-7 soccer team? Have I told you that we play our games at the Berl Huffman Athletic Complex? Have I mentioned that our game Saturday started at 3:00 pm? Do things like this mean I SHOULD coach or that I should NOT?

Man Pulls Gun At Game, Now Charged With Assault

Lubbock man arrested after armed threat

A Lubbock man was arrested at a youth soccer game Saturday after he pulled a pistol and aimed it at another man. Tye Burke, 25, was arrested at the Berl Huffman
Athletic Complex shortly before 2:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Lubbock Police.
While attending a soccer game, Burke got into an argument with a coach. Another
man tried breaking up the argument and at that time Burke pulled out a concealed
handgun and aimed it at the man, according to police.

Another man attending the soccer game saw Burke with the gun and tackled him. Burke was subsequently arrested and taken to jail on charges of aggravated assault,
according to police.

    Um, I think it means you should be nice and perhaps withhold that prize-winning sarcasm with questionable looking characters. :-)
