A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son. Suddenly, the boy burst into the kitchen.
"Careful! Careful! Put in some more butter! Oh my goodness! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful! ... CAREFUL! I said CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"
The mother stared at him. "What's wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?"
The son calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm trying to play soccer."
This little anecdote is to demonstrate how important it is to our players that the spectators do not interfere with with game. Cheering is good, coaching your player from the sidelines is not. Clapping is okay, yelling at your player is not. Encouraging is fine, screaming that the ref missed a call is not.
Please make each game as enjoyable for the players, the refs, the coaches, and the other spectators as possible. THANK YOU.
