Parents Behaving Badly

Just when I thought I was blessed for getting 1 video of parents behaving badly on Saturday, along comes a second little nugget today. For those of you that don’t know, I’m a reluctant soccer mom. I party hard with my girls but you’ll never see me creating obnoxious, Pinterest, soccer crafts or driving a mini van. I’d rather wash my hamster’s hair.

Saturday

My 12-year-old, P had a soccer game yesterday morning. What was your average game, quickly went down hill when one of our players collided with the opposing team’s player. Voices were raised and before you know it, this happened….

Sunday

I didn’t expect irate parents. If there was anyone irate, it was me, walking to field 80 despite there being 79 other, perfectly good fields. I tried to turn lemons into lemonade when I thought,

‘at least I’ll get my steps in’.

Then I was like, ‘fuck my steps, this blows,’ as I made it to the field 10 minutes later.

Things were uneventful until about 1/3 into the game. Suddenly a hot head parent began to scream belligerently on the field. Seeing that I had experience with this, less than 24 hours ago, I stood up and began to record the shit.

You would thing this was professional, European football. This guy paced around like a tiger, completely pissed off. I looked at his children, wondering if he beat them as this was a special type of personality.

Despite having an accent and clearly hispanic, he asked the ref that was ignoring him if he spoke English, Chinese or Spanish. The ref took it like a champ and completely ignored him.

Alas, I present to you Parents Behaving Badly Part Deux:

I may have a future in recording parents behaving badly. I’ve seen this behavior several times so really, I don’t think it will be hard to record more. Careful parents, I may record you……

Stumble, Tweet or Share and I'll love you forever!

  1. Ya know, I’ve seen some nasty fights from sports-parents. Especially softball dads – some of them are truly disgusting.

    On a side note and not meaning to sound like a total bitch, but I really need you to keep your camera on the action, so I can get my proper fill of gossipy stuff. Please? 😉 <3 (I'm teasing, of course)

    1. Of course!! LOL! Honestly, I was scared of the one dad yelling and haven’t mastered the fine art of video taping incognito! I’ll try harder next time! 😉

  2. Wait – so they ended the game because of the parents?! WHAT!?! Haha!!

    and I’m going to be the second one to request the camera stay on the dude freaking out haha….you should get one of those spy purses where you can just point it at the action and record but not look like you are recording and thus stay safe 😛

    1. So that was the plan but it wasn’t even half time. The kid that was on the ground (as if he were on his death bed) eventually went back in and they decided to finish the game. We won, 5 to 1. And yes, I will try next time to really focus on the guy and attempt to not get beat up. Or I’ll just run like the devil! LOL!

      1. Glad you got to finish the game and that your son’s team won!! WOOHOO and yes, please don’t get beaten up. Just make sure the husband is between you and the guy freaking out haha. C will protect you right?

        1. Maybe? LOL! He complained about my video tapping too! I told him the same thing! We saw how mad the one dude got from a bad call at his kid’s game, imagine if he peered over and saw me video taping! I’m not in shape enough to run away. LOL!
