This is a great little reminder that not all youth coaches and parents are psychopaths. After losing to Jackie Robinson West 8-7, Dave Belisle gathered his Cumberland American team from Rhode Island to let them know that even though they lost, it's not a reason to be upset or disappointed.

As most of the kids in the huddle cried, Belisle made them all lift their heads and look him in the eye as he told them to be proud because they had their hometown "jumpin', the whole state jumpin', you had New England jumpin', you had ESPN jumpin'." He also told them the only reason he would cry after this run is because he won't be coaching them. You don't often see moving post-game speeches from the losing side, but this one was excellent.
