The Keller Youth Association Football Program in northern Texas will not be handing participation trophies to their players this year. They say it's because awards should be earned.

"Going forward participation medals or trophies will be going away. KYA Football board feels that giving participation medals or trophies isn't sending our children the right message," the association wrote in a Facebook post. "Life does not give you a participation job or medal, life makes you earn everything you get," the announcement continued...

When I shoot one bird, there are no more nice jobs. You guys expect limits. And the further south one goes, the expectations get higher.

So what is wrong with expecting to shoot a limit of ducks? :sarcmark:

Nothing wrong with it. What we should all aspire to. Anything less is a failure.
