sooo...my older boys seem to like sports. DH and I go and clap and cheer for either team if they do something really special....ie my kids favorite sport is baseball and if a kid on the other team gets a really good catch I might yell "good catch right field" or if a kid on my son's team does something exceptional I might yell "nice job XXX" but overall I don't yell...I just or maybe give a good general "nice job blue'
This weekend he played in an all star tournament and everyone was super intense. At one point I went and sat on the other side because I wanted my little kids to be in the shade...we didn't yell or scream and honestly I don't think anyone even noticed us.
So today a group of people (who I know) came and sat on our teams side (because there was shade) and they were yelling and screaming the whole flippin time. Even when my son was pitching (and they knew he was my son and they know I was sitting right there) they were sort of heckling him....I thought I liked these people but I have been turning it over in my mind all afternoon and am still sort of mad and struggling with it. What do you think? I am not that competitive, but hearing people yell at my kid and my kids name has just left me off center.
