What comes around...

Remeber James Guillen, the 24-year old middle school coach who gave his player, Terrence Philo Jr., a "crybaby award" at the end-of-the-year sports banquet (if not see here and here)?

Well, Guillen got his comeuppance last week. According to Fox News, he had to present Terrence Philo Jr. with the Terrence Philo Jr. award -- in front of the whole school -- and give a speech about what a dope he was for first giving Philo the crybaby award.

Apparently the new award goes to the student who demonstrates dedication and team spirit. Philo was originally given the crybaby award for always pleading to get into games.

Last week Guillen gave the following speech:
"I would like to extend a special apology to the Terrence Philo family," Guillen, 24, told the boy in front of about 250 of his cheering classmates. He blamed his error last month on "my lack of experience as a coach and as a teacher."
Just a thought, but maybe the crybaby award can go to Plaxico, since he currently doesn't exemplify 'dedication and team spirit.'
