    I enjoyed this episode a lot even though it wasn't the best the series has had to offer. Watching Monk attempt to coach basketball added in good humor that pushed the pace of the show.

    Monk's obsession with his whistle almost had me rolling on the floor in laughter. I enjoyed the way the murder and the ivestigation were set-up, even if it was obvious who the killer was right away. Despite knowing who did it, I enjoyed the way the writers kept the killer's motive pretty hidden until towards the end.

    The scene at the end with Monk and the trophies was one of the types of scenes that this show is incredible at doing. When you watch it you can't help but crack a smile and be happy for Monk. He deserves it.
