Ok so I’m sure many of you have heard about the 4 yr. old who was tackled at college football game. Apparently it was some kind of spring youth football game, so I’m guessing it was more like a scrimmage. Anyways the little boy was walking on the sidelines when here comes the wide receiver trying to catch the pass, he didn’t see the little boy and slammed into him. I think all the boy ended up having was about 30 stitches, but at least his neurological exams were normal. Here’s the link for the story http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,268051,00.html
Ok so here’s my question what parent in their right mind would let there toddler just walk along the sidelines of a football game. I mean come on now lets have some common sense here; how many times have you watched a game and seen the players, coaches, or cheerleaders plowed into my the players on the field. I don’t care if they said it’s ok, the field is no place for a child to be running around. Why-because of what happened to that little boy. Now please don’t think I blame the player because I don’t, and I would have been peeved if someone blamed him for it. I just think the child shouldn’t have been down there. Ok off my soapbox-sorry. Let me know what you think.
