Tight orange coaching shorts




That's what I'm missing. Today was my first practice with the Middle School Girls' Soccer team. Everything was in place- my roster, our season schedule, my prepared list of drills. Yet somehow, it just wasn't complete. My years on the team at Ridgeway High taught me that a real coach wears tight, ill-fitting, wide-band waisted, bright orange coach shorts. There was a part of me that hoped I at least looked slightly hilarious while running around with the drills because that seemed to be part of the job description when I was a student too. Ahh, Coach Terre, thanks for the memories.

That model is totaly unrealistic. SHoulnt they be tilted down because of the big belly?

i think they might only be sold in the US to big bellied coaches...when they see them come into the store they are escorted by a manager into a back room where the super tight "hug in all the wrong places" bright colored shorts are sold. i am pretty sure it would be impossible for you to get them...

i'll see if my dad can get some for you. :)
