Any real baseball fan knows that the Tom Hanks line in A League of Their Own –>”There’s No Crying in Baseball” is incorrect. There is plenty of crying in baseball from little league all the way into Professional levels. However, it seems there truly is no crying allowed by children during soccer matches.
I love most sports but a sad fact about media driven modern sports, is that a considerable amount of crowd/fan violence has grown into the base of each sports fans. Fan violence has become a frequent “Stupid is as Stupid does” part of sporting events. It has become a curse upon the soul of all sports at all levels of competition. And the sport of soccer is the worst of the worst when it comes to fan violence. I was just reading a QCOnline article about a truly despicable act of violence connected to the current World Cup of Soccer series. 😯 The article states a father in Texas beat to death a 2year-old child for crying while he was watching the World Cup of Soccer. Any form of fan violence connected to sporting events is obsessive. Killing someone over events related to a sporting events is beyond lunacy. Events like this one shake my hardline belief against the death penalty.
