In about 10 minutes this afternoon, came across 6 different baseball programs in immediate St. Louis area that use the following word in describing their club team program:

Premier adjective

  1. first in importance, order, or position; leading.
    “Germany’s premier rock band”

Three things to say about this ….

First, success should be measured by what you actually do, not vague comparisons to others.  “Premier” is relative to others.  Success is relative to yourself, things that you control. Really important life lesson for kids, especially good athletes.  

Second, “premier” is pretty much bragging about how good you are.  Not a good word to describe yourself. Why would you do that?

Third, Premier …. seriously? Based on what?

Maybe they mean premiere and not premier.  Because some of them were here first. Words are tricky that way.
