Sounds like.....

While the NCAA tournament is about to go into full swing, Louis is also about to go into the playoffs for his basketball season. This year Paul decided to take a step back due to traveling and be the assistant coach. We're quite certain it is because of Paul that a new rule is in effect stating that assistant coaches must be seated on the bench during the entire game. So, Paul sits. And sits. Although, he's been threatened with technicals, even while sitting. He's enjoying his role as assistant, especially since his assistant from last year is now the head coach and is starting to make Bobby Knight look like a yoga instructor. This Quebecois (Canadian of very strong French decent) is known to throw his clipboard, scream at the kids and generally yell a lot. In French and broken English. Despite the clip board, he really doesn't know that much about basketball except to yell "hands up" a lot.

But nothing could prepare Paul for what came out the coach's mouth at the beginning of the season, when the team really wasn't doing that well. Paul heard him yelling "asshole, asshole, asshole," as the team was running down the court. Now, this shocked even Paul whose language is shall we say, colorful? And now it's colorful in French and English. It took a few moments for Paul to realize the coach was yelling "hustle, hustle, hustle." See, in French, the "H" is not pronounced which made "hustle" with a French accent sounds just like...."asshole."

Ha! That's hilarious. I like the peak into Canadian culture. Maybe it will help me understand some of my husband's family!
