The virus has spurred people to come up with some very creative ways to stay in touch with their favorite sports.
The other day a father was seen on TV working with his 3 year old son hitting foam tennis balls in the house. The kid is going to be a fine player someday.
If he lives in Denver, I’ll undoubtedly refrain from attending his matches.
Why? you ask.
Well…the father has obviously taught the kid to punctuate each shot with a Sharapova-like scream.
At least with her we had the mute button handy.
Some parents can be well meaning and totally misguided and I pity every opponent this kid will play in the juniors.
btw…the kiddo pictured is not the same one…he’s one of the 98% of juniors who have parents wise enough to realize how obnoxious this can be. Instilling this habit in a three year old would be like teaching him to insert the word ‘like’ three times into each sentence uttered.
