This is what I'm doing and thinking most of the time.

Two games and a brilliant game plan brings a championship. The boys were a little slow in the first game against the chiefs but didn't allow any points in a 12-0 win. The championship game was against a Seahawks team that beat them by 6 points two weeks ago. The boys adapted their game by listening to the coach of the Raiders (who lost to the Seahawks in the semifinal), one of their kids parents and a little advice from me.
It was good to see them seek and listen to advice to devise a way to completely destroy a team (36-6) that hadn't lost all year. A key to success is the ability to ask for help and listening to and using outside perspectives. They both did a great job of that and brought home gold after leading these boys to second place finish last year.
The parents were thrilled as well. They all gushed over the job the boys did with their kids.
