Mind your manners, it matters.
Its not all about winning or losing; its how you play the game.
In a household with 6 kids we have been to countless sporting events. We would like to remind our fellow sports fans that it is very easy to get carried away and that excited fans can get frustrated in a split second. Please be mindful and remember how we act at a sporting event also reflects our character in daily life. Be the encouraging fan and not the bully. Things go sideways and how we respond in respectful ways is key. Everyone around us sees our behavior, especially the young fans and players. Don’t be the “Bleacher Bully” the players do hear you and although you walk away, that player hears your voice for a long time.
Be a role model for encouragement and compassion. Don’t get arrogant with a good play or hostile for a bad one. Have fun and remember there is always a next time in sports.
