4 Year Old Boy Cries After Cardinals Lose

I’m a HUGE sports fan – especially baseball – and, because of the nature of my household, my 7 year-old son is as well.

When I saw this video of a young St. Louis Cardinals fan’s reaction to his team being eliminated from the playoffs, I couldn’t help but empathize with the poor kid.  Not only because of the age similarity but because I, too, have felt EXACTLY this way (substituting the Seattle Mariners for St. Louis)

Some people (as seen in some of the YouTube comments) criticize the parenting of the child saying that they should be teaching him what is really important in life and not to be so distraught over a game.

I disagree.

I’ve always felt that sports, whether you are participating or spectating are “unimportantly” important.  While the outcome of a contest isn’t going to have world peace hinging on it, I do think that that it teaches us a lot about life.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.  Life. like sports, isn’t always just or fair.  Sometimes you are the better person but end up with the short end of the stick.  Other times you step in crap and come out smelling like a rose.

What this youngster DOESN’T yet realize is that waiting “til next year” can sometimes last your whole life!

Just ask us 41 year-old Mariners fans!
