    Just a quick entry.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Its always a holiday that makes you think about the people that mean most to you, which can be an interesting experience sometimes.

    I'l be making a long post soon about some random coaching related thoughts that I have rolling around in my head, cuz it seems like something... somewhere... is WRONG. But thats as much as I can figure out so far.
