I don't understand how it happened.. but I'm now that guy on the sidelines cheering on my spawn (boy) during soccer games. Soccer, my least favorite "sport", is an experiment. Americans supposedly love it, yet it's not fully embraced on a professional/national level. Maybe we.. and when I say "we" I mean.. not me, but everybody suburban else... love it because anybody can do it on a toddler/kid level.
Some of the parents are like crazed, rabies- induced cheering zombies; as if their kids immediate success in the current debacle/game had Hunger Games impliciations on their family's survival.
It's entertaining, weird, slightly disturbing. Bottom line: I'm glad the boy isn't loving the soccer vibe. Next stop...whatever he wants to try next.
