From The Stands...

Sports bring out the obnoxious in parents...it is a sickness. You can try to be different and composed but eventually you will give in and spend a full hour of your life screaming at 12-14 year old kids like they can A.) hear you or B.) care

A sampling of what could be heard from the stands...from me...at Jordan's game yesterday...

HUSTLE LADIES!
WHERE IS THE COVERAGE?!
WHY CAN'T YOU SHOOT LAYUPS?!
TURN AROUND!
TAKE THE BALL AWAY FROM HER!
MAKE HER FOUL YOU! (aimed at the only really good player on the other team who had 4 fouls on her and one more would have put her on the bench :) )
TAKE IT ALL THE WAY IN! DON'T STOP AT THE 3 POINT LINE!
OH MI GOSH!! UGH!!

I would say that isn't so bad seeing as how it is too loud to hear much of anything since everyone is screaming at once...but I did hear from behind me...

PUNCH HER IN THE FACE!

I think that was coming from another kid though, not a parent. I think.

So....is this 'Drum Line' associated with the football team that Ridgeland stomped...or was it like the Super bowl halftime show?

DrumLine is a movie. A very cool movie. You should watch it!
