Today was an exciting day for L and PT...their first Xavier University basketball game at Cintas Center.
Our kids watched the Xavier vs. University of Cincinnati game with us recently. Those of you from the Cincinnati area know that it is a game that is heated and unpredictable. Well this one ended in a huge fight...pushing, punching, mouthing off, and a kick. After they started doing replays and close-ups, we made the kids leave the room and later talked to them about sportsmanship.
Fast forward to today...PT asked if L had ever seen a basketball game in person and her response was, "No but I have seen a hockey game and they both fight.". Then she smirked.
Ironically, she went to a special "education day" at the Cyclones hockey game earlier this year with her class. Tons of kids filled the place and a huge brawl broke out I hear...great "education day.". The only thing more ironic would have been hockey players hosting a "dental health" day. I hope this isn't going to be a pattern with our sports teams.
Her quick wit makes it a little hard not to laugh.
