It's a Joke!!!
Folks, I am not american and I don't know this cast, but I can easily understand that it is a satire, it has not happend for real. So don't make conclusions on this. It's more fun to read your comments than the video itself.

Work is not the curse
To anonymous - comment 5, no Adam's curse was fruitlessness and wasted effort - thorns and thistles.
Work came before the curse, as he was commissioned to work the garden, and make the earth as good as the garden.

Someone once told me;
If you don't invest enough in your business, you can lose your business, but your family will always be there for you.
But this, in my opinion, is taking it too far.
wasn't working Adam's curse? Why should we be chasing it?

this is the most modern and consumerist re-figuring of some of the 'major ideas" presented in psalm 137 i have ever seen
A big thank you to Moishe, for telling the truth about the priorities of those more attracted to the mechanical lure or instant gratification reactionary pull of professional sports careers; the 'big top show of the sport' doesn't leave much time to concentrate on the 'development' or nurturing component of any .... fast-paced 'business'; life becomes something you fit into half-time'.
therefor; 'he shoots, he scores' ... and children are thrown against the crags once more ....

Priorities straight at last!
At last, an American man who realizes that the lasting satisfaction of a professional career by far outweighs any transient thrill of seeing a grandchild take his first steps! Kudos to Coach. The parochial concerns of his family are trivial beside the awesome responsibilties of sports/entertainment.
