I don’t want to sound dramatic About The End Of Western Culture Beginning With U12 Girls Soccer, but I Totally Think It Is
The ABSOLUTE 100% highlight of my week is getting to watch my daughters play soccer. I LOVE the place where they play –Danvers Indoor Sports. It is clean, well run, and an awesome modern place where the kids can get their sporting activity on even in the dead of winter.
But I’m afraid that the place where my favorite thing in the world to do has now succumbed to the idiots that have brought us participation awards instead of tournaments where there are winners and losers.
A couple of weeks ago the scoreboards stopped keeping score. The timers worked just fine, but when a team scored a goal, it didn’t register. Among the parents we just assumed that the scoring system where the ref changes the scores was broken. But yesterday we found out that it was a conscious decision to stop displaying the scores because people were getting too charged up over the scores and because… feelings.
I can’t BELIEVE IT!
Are you kidding me??????
We’re just gonna stop keeping score now?????? I can’t, I really really really can’t believe that this is a thing. I’m so beyond disappointed that this is the direction people want to go with the youth of America. So soft. So beyond soft.
This is craaaazy.
