This kind of shit cracks me up. Look at them: a bunch of adults fighting like children on a playground, and all over a children’s game! It reinforces my dislike of sports — it simply makes some people crazy, especially these parents who are no doubt far past their prime and living vicariously through their spawn.
Police were called to Sharpsburg Tuesday night because of a confrontation among parents and officials after a game between two 7-and-8-year-old Little League teams.
Exactly what happened and why aren’t clear, but people who were there described a series of ugly moments that included:
- Racial and gay slurs directed at players.
- A slew of profanity, particularly by people trying to disperse an angry crowd of parents and league officials.
- A mother who was allegedly grabbed and pushed against a fence, causing an arm injury she had examined at the hospital.
