Sports Video: Middle School Football Team Executes Trick Play to Perfection

Nothing necessarily “bad” about this situation, but a number of readers have sent me this link (and the video has been viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube) and it is kind of cute.
But then again, you look at it, and you have to wonder what this teaches the young players . . . on both teams. That if you have a coach who understands the rules better than the other coach that you can win? That being sneaky is better than working hard and being good at what you do? Or that you have to be a student of the game and take the risk of knocking the crap out of an opposing quarterback who looks like he’s doing something unusual even if it means you might get penalized?
