I see where the Washington Nationals baseball organization has hired Rick Ankiel as "life skills coordinator," to mentor their minor leaguers.
Where was such a coach when I needed one?
Would I have listened (i.e., practiced what he or she preached) if such a mentor were assigned to me?
Does anyone ever listen to such advice when young?
It is an intriguing title.
Life Skills Coordinator.
What skills get coordinated?
And is it too late for me to receive (and act upon) such guiding, coaxing, coaching, nudging, encouraging, admonishing, ameliorating, correcting, rectifying, advising, pushing, and coordinating?
