I'm glad I missed my son's football game today (my daughter had a soccer game in another town), because I'm not sure I could've handled it like a lady. Apparently, another teammates father was shouting some very unkind things to and about my son, who is the quarterback. He was doing it very loudly and repeatedly and unfortunately my son heard every word. They were having a rough game and lost 27-38. Keep in mind...my son is 11. These are children and I am disgusted that his heart is going through this. He was choking up on the phone just telling me about it and when he gets home - I'll give him the biggest hug, but I know it will not help. I remember a poem that used to be on the back of the high school football programs and the gist was "do not belittle the players, because they're just young kids, etc etc. The end of the poem said something like "he's just a boy and not yet a man" and "that boy is my son, you see" or something to that affect. I tried to search it online and can't find it. I am hoping to have it printed up and placed on the back of the programs next year. It's a shame it's needed. Some people.... If I was there, I would've asked the man (I use that word loosely)...if you want our team to win then why would you mess with the quarterback's head like that, buddy?! Shouting out like that - it only screws up their focus. It probably embarrassed his OWN son. Jerk! Does anyone know which I'm talking about???
