Hypocrisy is the resin that holds the plywood of society together
In Andover, he played varsity basketball and baseball, though he was not a star player. He did quit sports his senior year. He became a cheerleader instead of a player, though this was so he could focus his time and energy on his garage band, the Torqueys (weirdly, he wasn't a singer or instrument player - he was "the clapper" in the band). Unlike Kerry's garage band, I don't believe they ever recorded a single.
During this time, Bush also organized the previously haphazard Andover stickball league - becoming Andover's first "High Commissioner of Stickball." A classmate remembers him stopping a stickball game and leading everybody in applause for a bookish, academically-disinclined student who, to everybody's surprise, caught a pop fly. Tell me that's not gym teacher behavior.
During his "nomadic years," he mentored African-American kids in the PULL program in Texas. That program included many sports outings. Youngsters in the program remember Bush playing basketball and teaching wrestling. He also, interestingly, told youngsters not to run when they saw a police cruiser because cops in Texas would unfairly assume the kids had done something illegal and run them down.
I'm telling you - Bush is considerably more qualified to be a gym teacher than he is to be president. In some alternate universe, some better alternate universe, there's a group of kids who absolutely adore their wonderful gym teacher Coach Bush.
So it wouldn't have really mattered.

Well, I'm sure you know what I'm thinking.
