Yeah, I put up these offbeat talks now and then, not at all about education and technology, but still (I hope) pertinent to educators and parents.
My question is whether we should--and whether we can--change the end-game ritual of lining up the opposing teams and having them pass each other while slapping hands and saying "Good game." I talked to the players on my women's league teams and asked whether they'd be willing to try something new. We played around with possibilities and ended up with a back-of-the-wrist bump which worked fairly well.
Wondered, would you like to see the ritual changed? Do you think it's important as we try to reduce the spread of illness, particularly this year? What would you suggest as an alternative?
Would you be willing to ask your children's coaches to change the ritual, or would you feel too silly?
