Why am I a sucker? Shoot, I don't know, I just am, but here's the latest evidence. I am the new head track coach at Tampa Catholic High School. I didn't want to do it. Jeez, I don't mind being an assistant, that's actually kind of fun, but paper work, arranging transportation, scheduling meets, that stuff blows chunks.
But, I am a tough negotiator! I told them I wanted $9,000 as a supplement (as I got 500 for Cross Country I was not hopeful.)
TC countered with ..... No, we'll get someone else.
I then went down to $8800, they said, no we'll get someone else.
Well the joke was on them, the other guy wouldn't do it, so they came back to me.
I reiterated my demand, 9K!
Er, Ok, what will you give me?
Well try to get me more, and I'll call an organizational meeting for next week.
Andy Mathews is a big time sucker (but at least we have a brand new synthetic track!)
