So went and watches Jes's nephew play 7 and 8th grade basketball today, and during halftime the coach was trying to start a fight with a guy in the stands over an expired ejection. After the game when the kids were supposed to be doing the sportmanship handshake like, the away coach started to yell at the home coach. Words were exchanged and then the away coach punched the other coach, small scuffle ensued and it ended with an 80 year old man got knocked over and hit is head. Whew. I can't believe the level of sportsmanship at this school district, there are always parents arguing and even screaming at kids on the field and court. This happens at a youth and high school level. What kind of lesson are they trying to teach there kids?? I can't believe how these people are ALLOWED to act at these events, it is a privilege to attend, not a right. I don't care if you have a child in it or ot, if you can't keep your composure, you shouldn't be allowed.
Ugh. I ended up calling and filing a report, maybe the kids ultimate lesson will be learned when there coach is walked out in cuffs for assault. Teach them that this is not the correct way to act. I'll be working on a letter to both schools on crowd control this weekend. This wouldn't have been allowed in my home town.
BTW, I had no partisan in the game, both sides are guilty of being horrible examples to these young adults.
