46 Weeks---"Hit him in the mouth"
Now onto the dad behind us. We have season tickets so normally it's the same people around us, but this guy was new. At first, I thought, "Oh what a great Dad, taking his 7-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter to a football game by himself". Man, was I wrong. As the players lined up for kick-off and he held both of his children close to his side, in his loudest voice came out "KICK HIM IN THE MOUTH", "KILL HIM", "GET THAT F****** GUY"!
I couldn't help but give my half a head turn "yes I'm looking at you in disapproval" look. I was shocked and was continually shocked throughout the game of what came out of this man's mouth. Before you ask, yes we were rooting for the same team, so this doesn't come out of resentment for my beloved Cowboys losing. I spent most of the game wondering if I should say something or hoping someone else would. I mean when this guy gets his first phone call from his 12-year-old getting in a fight at school, I hope he isn't shocked. Even worse, he'll probably want to know who won the fight.
So when do you say something? Obviously if there is ever any physical harm being done to the child I would intercede, but what about verbal?
