    You're in the wrong sport (and the wrong forum) if you want serious excuses for skipping practice.

    If you're injured, don't practice. If you're healthy, don't make excuses. Not only is it bad karma, but you will fall further and further behind your opponents.

    It's these days that you don't want to train and you push yourself in that you actually become a better person and wrestler. If you want excuses, find another sport.

    "I'm on house arrest and can't get the damn ankle bracelet off."

    "I'm out of my medication and my psychiatrist is afraid I might commit another . . . oh, okay, I'll come to practice anyway."

    "If I put a band-aid over this rash will that be okay?"

    "Can I stay after practice to roll around with that hot 171 pounder?" (only effective if you both are guys)

    - or the one that probably fits you best:

    "Coach, I'm not really serious about wrestling, so is it okay if I just show up when I want to?"

    You might try telling your coach that you need to work on your English homework.

    I think everyones point is, you shouldn't need an excuse. Tell your coach you need a day off if it is that important that you take a break. Don't lie, just man up and tell him.

    You are right, so maybe I should have questioned your honesty instead of your dedication. I agree with Wiltz (and M Richardson).

    11 years of wrestling experience and the grammar of an 11 year old. Although your spelling of the word "doubt" may offend some 5th graders..
