... the lack of respect those kids (and their parents, too) have.
That's not something I'm looking forward to when my kids play sports (presuming they do). I've heard horror stories of soccer moms or hockey dads. I played sports in high school (shhhh...over 25 years ago) and don't remember anything/person/parent being that way. Makes me wonder what's changed. Is it that the stakes are higher? Or have we just evolved into a society that covets winning (at all costs)?
Sorry for the soap box...
