The psychology instructor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test.
Speaking specifically about manic depression, she asked, “How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?"
A young man in the rear raised his hand and answered, “A football coach?"
'So you want to join us here at Spirit Soccer Club as a rep coach, do you? What sort of salary were you expecting?'
'$1000 a week.'
'And what experience have you-had?'
'I've never coached before.'
'You've no coaching experience and you want $1000 a week!'
'Well, it's much harder when you don't know anything about it.'

Coach: What is not true, I trust the captain and I am asking this in front of him!
Football player: Coach, It is untrue that I was sleeping!
Talking To A Player
Coach Bowden was talking to the newest player on the team." It's fantastic the way you strike the line, dodge, tackle and weave through your opponents."

"It's going fine, " the manager says. "When I'm on the court and I see the ball speeding towards me, my brain immediately says, 'To the corner! Back hand! To the net! Smash! Go back!'" "Really? What happens then?" the secretary asks. "Then my body says, 'Who? Me? You must be kidding!'"
