Now I don't want to go all David Archuletta's Dad on you, but ......MY KID KICKS BUTT in baseball.
I've been spending WAY to much time at the ballpark lately, usually watching my small herd of wild monkeys instead of the game. Tonight I was at the game with the baby....alone. It was really fun, in an "I'm going to have to punch that guy over there in the teeth" kind of way.
I happened to be sitting in the way outfield between a couple of families. They both happened to be supporters of the opposing team. This isn't a problem for me because my sons 2 best friends are on that team, so I was cheering for them too....or, i was going to until I listened to those mean other parents. When my boy got up to bat mean Dad yelled, "Easy Out!!" How in the heck does he know??? And, how rude to yell so that a nervous little boy could hear. Cute son ended up getting walked...and later slid into home plate....."SAFE!!"
When Cute son was pitching the Rudie-patooty family on the other side started commenting on his pitching. What is the deal with these people?? These are only kids!!!
The last inning had my son pitching to Rudie-patooty's son. She was yelling, "Come one honey, hit it out to Mommy!" I secretly wished Son to pitch well...which he did! I am so proud that He can keep his cool under all of the pressure....I could learn from him!
ps. No mean or rude people were punched in the mouth by an irate, slightly (ha) overweight mother of 6.
