You have an issue with this? I don’t have an issue with this. You know why?
Amen, Randy. If you can’t go around slugging other parents at your kid’s little league game, then what are we even doing here? Then what’s this whole thing even all about? Our forefathers didn’t win our independence from the tyrant rulers of England so we’d sit on our hands and put our thumbs up our butts when lil’ Stevie calls a clear ball a strike. Heads HAVE to roll.
ABC - A baseball game between a group of 7-year-old kids degenerated into an all-out brawl with parents throwing haymakers, other cowering for cover and a woman even jumping on someone’s back.
The reason for the brawl: a parent didn’t like the calls being made by a 13-year-old umpire.
The fight began at Westgate Elementary School in Lakewood, Colorado, a suburb southwest of Denver, on Saturday at about noon as 15 to 20 adults got into a violent tussle, according to Lakewood police.
I don’t care that the umpire was only 13. 13 or 30, it makes no difference to me, because you have to set a good example for the kids. You have to teach them early on to stand up for what they believe in. When you disagree with a ref or an umpire, you gotta get in their face. You gotta get angry. And you gotta lose your freakin‘ mind. It’s just the American way.*
* Tune in tomorrow to the New Amsterdam Field Day video when I lose *my* freakin’ mind on our ref, Spider. I have a feeling some people will get mad at me for…yelling in his face? Spirit of competition, people get fired up. So if you’re one of those people who don’t like when people lose their minds at refs/umps making bad calls, well, you’re in for a real treat tomorrow.
