Yes, skirmishes between adults do occur at prestigious events like the World Cup, however, ever hear of a fist fight breaking out at a youth sporting event?
Well, that is exactly what happened this past weekend at a girls youth soccer game. When parental emotions run high during competitive events involving their own kids, volatile situations can result - especially when a situation occurs where one parent sees unfair play that they feel puts their own child at risk.
Now I don't want to add too much of my own flavor to this since it is such a hot topic right now in the Westchester, NY area where AM 1230 WFAS Radio will be covering the topic on this Sunday's morning radio show, "Let Them Play" at 8:00 a.m. Central Time.
If you want to know more about what happened, I encourage you to read the story and responses at the blog here: Let Them Play
