Got this funny story from recent guest, George Zanic. As you’ll probably remember, Coach Zanic is the only coach we’ve featured (so far!) that is both an active coach and a sitting judge. Anyway, he related this great story which I’m sure nearly everyone reading this (except for those of you in Southern California) can relate to.
Yesterday afternoon I received a call from the County Emergency Management director regarding the impending ice/snow event. He asked about the court calendar, and he said that I should make a decision as to the closure of the court system for tomorrow as soon as possible. After getting his report, I immediately had my court administrator call all of the court staff and attorneys and closed the court system.
Then it hit me…..if I was making the call on a baseball game, I would have checked five weather sites, and relied on the most favorable. I then would have called the other coach and said “Hey it looks like we have a window tomorrow right around game time. Let’s wait until tomorrow to make the call…what time does your bus leave?”
