Video: the Saddest Little Cardinals fan
One young Cardinals fan wasn't happy about his team falling to the Giants and failing to go to the World Series. And the kid's parent did what every parent of the age does: turn on a video camera and upload the video to YouTube.
I remember, as a kid, being inconsolable after Joe Montana found Dwight Clark over Everson Walls in the NFC Championship Game. I cried and cried and cried, and it didn't help that we watched the game at the house of a friend that was an Eagles fan. We all know Eagles fans love Cowboys losses more than Eagles wins. I was inconsolable, and my parents were, rightly, embarrassed by the way that I acted.
Sure, I was 6, but still, it was a little much. I was given a talk about how to react to sports heartbreak and putting sports in their proper place. Of course, that was the early '80s. Parents these days have a different impulse -- turning on the video camera and putting their pouting kids on YouTube.
This phenomenon isn't new; we've seen it before. But every time, I'm amazed more at the parenting decision than I am the kid's heartbreak. The latest child to have his heart broken is this young Cardinals fan:
Buck up, kiddo, the Cardinals won last year, and it could be worse -- you could be a Royals fan.
I will agree with this kid on one thing: The offseason is too long, and I'm ready for next season to start already.
