Crazy Sports Parents
“SUCK IT!” the mom screamed at the baseball team sitting beside her in the bleachers.
The baseball team of 9-year-olds.
It’s true. A seemingly normal looking, average mom yelled “SUCK IT” at a bunch of kids. This was reported to me by my husband, who took our own 9-year-old to a baseball game Saturday night. My son’s team and the team he was to play were watching the game before theirs. It was a tournament, and the team my son was about to play was rooting for one of the teams on the field so that their own chance of advancing in the tournament was greater.
Well, I guess a mom from the team that wasn’t being cheered for took offense. And so when her team scored a run, she turned to 9-year-olds waiting in the bleachers beside her and told them to suck it.
Yes, SUCK IT.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
My husband says the mom told the 9-year-old boys to suck it not once, but TWICE.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?
The only saving grace is that the coach of the team who can claim the crazy mom came over and apologized for the outburst. He assured everyone that the mom was asked to leave the tournament.
It’s crazy out there, folks. Take care of each other!
And please don’t tell my 9-year-old, or any 9-year-old, to suck it!
