“We Were Calling Sets”
One of the biggest no-nos paddling dragon boat in Long Beach is that we do NOT race in front of Mother’s Beach. I’m one of the members of SCDBC that is tasked with making sure that the rules are followed.
After seeing 2 of this team’s boats racing in front of Mother’s Beach. I approached Coach X. This was our exchange:
Me: “Hi, as you know, you can’t race in front of Mother’s Beach.”
Coach: “We weren’t racing, we were calling sets.”
Me: (wondering what the F calling sets means) “Come on, you were racing. Next time, if you want to go at 100% in front of Mother’s Beach, stagger your boats.”
Me: “That’s it.” And I walked away.
Seriously, what’s so hard about following rules? If you insist on breaking the rules, next time own your mistake like a man or at least before you give me some bullshit excuse, make it believable.
