Utah, Stop Listening to Hero Moms!
Do you know a "hero mom"?
My best friend in junior high had a hero mom.
Anytime he got a detention and would have to stay after school for 30 minutes in Ms. Ratzlaff's classroom, his hero mom would show up and bark at the principal. Her job was to save her kid.
If a referee called him for traveling, she was incredulous.
Nobody messed with her special little guy.
She was a hero mom.
And if he ever was doing something fun that she thought might be dangerous to any degree, she was hovering. Near trampolines, drivers ed, tire swings etc... And because she was a scary mom and we were 12-year-olds, she ran the show.
Hero mom's kill fun.
Hero moms changed the name Biggest Outdoor Cocktail Party between Georgia and Florida.
They changed the name of The Red River Shootout, one of the greatest rivalry games in sports.
Hero mom's are buzzkills...
The state of Oregon's politicians today, who are hero politicians, are introducing a bill #HB2472, that will suspend the head coach and athletic director for a week if their fans “engage in the use of derogatory or inappropriate names, insults, verbal assaults, profanity or ridicule in violation of equity focused policies.”
In other words, your coach will be suspended if his fans act like fans.
Hero mom's are trying to buzzkill football. We need to stop listening to them. We're not scared 12-year-olds anymore. Stop letting hero moms and uptight millennials ruin all the fun in life. Fans...Get drunk. Hurl insults. And vote no on hero moms.
