The Forgotten Ones

When a married man becomes a head coach in any sport, but basketball and football in particular, that leaves his wife a widow for several months. In some cases, it becomes almost a year-round sentence. With the demands in time placed on these coaches today with off-season training and coaching it takes a real loyal person to shoulder the load. If the husband wants to keep his job, he is expected–and really demanded–to do all these things, so it falls on the wife to raise the family. The coach’s day may start as early as 6 a.m. and go until well after midnight on certain days of the week. It takes a long time to chart every play in a game for all 11 players in football. Multiply this by the fact there is offense and defense with over 100 plays per game, and it takes hours. While the husband is doing his duties, his wife has to do her job plus run the household. If you have 2 or 3 active children, you know how many activities this could be. Add to this the season that is not going well, and the wife has a husband coming home in fear of losing his job. Then there are the nights after the game you led until one minute left and one play turned a win into a loss. The next time you see one of these ladies, tell her how good a job she is doing. She certainly deserves it!
