Every parent has had the tough drive home, no matter the sport.

The trip after the bad game when the drive time seems five times longer than the normal and the scheduled stop at the Dairy Queen won’t solve matters.

“I remember a hockey game that didn’t go well, I wasn’t behaving properly,” Tom Glavine told an estimated crowd of 48,000 at the Clark Sports Center here Sunday afternoon.

“After a short time, my father said: — and it’s a line I’ve use on my kids — ‘Either you go in with a smile on your face and come out with one, or I’m not taking you any more.’”

Glavine made the attitude adjustment, which helped him win 305 games and it’s why he was inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside former Braves ace Greg Maddux and manager Bobby Cox, plus Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Frank Thomas.

Glavine, 48, said he recalls the drive like it happened yesterday.
