The Red Sox Worst Nightmare

the sox thought they had it all in the bag once they won in 2004, now its 2 years later and nothing good has come since then, its just them being big-headed. I'm enjoying every single minute of their problems, because thats what comes to them for being cocky. If there ever was a curse, it's sure coming back now. For all the Red Sox fans, have a nice time waiting it out. In the meantime you can watch the Yankees in the playoffs

"Fields of Green: High School Pay."

I think its a shame how teachers are undervalued so much in our time. They are the ones that raise the kids in school and teach them all that parents probably couldn't. It is horrible how little they get paid. That said, paying football coaches more than teachers is just ridiculous. Football will never replace learning, here, in texas whereever. I agree perfectly with scottypup, that people with more education and working for the better of the world are paid dramatically less than a baseball or football player. They should be valued more the previously stated, the main reason being they are improving the world while the local QB is not. The coaches should be doing their work not for the pay but because they love the sport, especially at the high school level. Don't get me wrong, I'm an athlete myself but I can not see why we would give some guy from Texas who thinks he knows where to put the X's and O's over a teacher that could put more values and skills in a kid's head. To think otherwise is just disgraceful. Athletics in high school is great but only a chosen few make it into the professional level. What happens to all the wannabes? They are left with nothing, no mental ability, no skills, no resume. We just need to put things in their correct priority and that is encouraging kids to do better in school and not overglamorize the football field.
