In the words of Fat Bastard:
I’m not fat shaming but only someone with NOTHING to live for other than a W in her kid’s shitty rec league basketball game would do this.
Source: Shocking video captures the moment a parent sitting courtside at a youth basketball tournament in Rocklin appears to stick out her leg to trip a player from the competing team.
Players, coaches and parents from the Cornerstone Basketball Academy based in Vallejo traveled miles away to take part in the Hardwood Palace tournament Saturday against the Folsom Elite Basketball Academy.
“This specific team is our 10-year-old and under team,” said Eugene Solano, the director of the Vallejo team.
“One of the kids during one of the timeouts had said, ‘Hey coach, there’s a parent on the sideline, it’s a woman you know, I think she’s wearing a pink hat,’ pretty specific. ‘And she’s telling their kids to elbow us in the face,'” he recalled.
Solano said coaches and parents often record video highlights to show back to their kids. The same footage also showed the woman in the pink hat appearing to stick out her foot while a 9-year-old Vallejo player dribbles the ball past her.
I’ve spent that last two years trying to reconcile when it’s appropriate to call someone like this a “Pig In The Blanket” or mutter ‘bitch’ when I watch this video. I’m really trying hard to not meet the unfair with vitriol and derogatory personal attacks. It’s tough for me for two reasons:
- I hate wasting time. If someone’s an asshole to me I’ve always ‘gone for the throat’. Why spend time arguing over details when you can just tell someone to fuck off or their wife was right to leave them.
- I know people like this are a mess inside so I don’t want my blog to be the one that pushes them over the edge.
There’s little to no chance Jeff Van Gundy’s alcoholic sister here, is gonna read this so I’m more comfortable being honest about how I really feel. Sorry, it’s just how I feel.
At least it wasn’t her own kid. I once heard a hockey mom call her son ‘Panty Waste’ in Whitby, Ontario. She’s still the champ.
