midnight rider with a personal note to this story:
Every year my son-in-law (in Alaska) flies to the lower 48 for a weekend and meets his college roommate for a Seahawks game, his original home team.
This year it happened to be this game in Nashville.
This past weekend also happened to be my oldest grandson's 6th birthday. Since he is also a huge football fan dad decided to take him along on the trip as a big part of his present.
The kid was beyond thrilled. HIS FIRST NFL GAME!
From the pictures I have seen (haven't had a chance to talk to him yet) he had a blast. It will take a long time to wipe that grin from his face.
But my point is this.
It saddens angers and disgusts me that this happened. True that at his age I doubt he realized what was going on.
But here they are, his dad having spent the round trip airfare tickets & accommodations for not one but 2 seats from Anchorage to Nashville
for the kid to see this. A bunch of overpaid overfed grown men acting like spoiled pampered self indulgent insolent little brats with less manners than my grandson.
And putting a blemish on my grandson's birthday. And his first real NFL game.
How many times was that repeated this weekend across the country (and London, too).
Not only is it a disrespect to our Country and Flag but also to the fans who come and pay to see them
play football. Not act like someone who didn't get their ice cream cone flavor.
Unless and until these little crybabies (oh the President said something so mean) start acting like grown men I am done with professional football.
