For the Children

Some parents take things waaaaaaaaaaay too seriously.

I used to se parents get too involved with children’s sports when ours were young and it turned us away. Seems like this is all these people live for is to travel to ball fields, bitch, moan and complain about everything that happens on the field and those parents think they are setting a good example for their children. Everyone I talk to who travel the children league games are worn slap out on Monday when they get back to work or Tuesday if the games run over. This has gotten out of hand and I can’t tell one dad from another when they shave their heads, wear shades on the top of their heads (useless) and have their little goatee, then jump into an SUV with Yeti stickers, Oilfield Life or Salt life or even better, two sandals or sometimes more (either one is as bad as the other).Wow.... have we really classed up or what?

I have a tape of something similar occurring on a soccer field sidelines in Brandon 26 years ago (under 12). Nothing has changed.

Look at those thugs. Keep this in Madison, please.

And you called the guys throwing a little beer on a bear that was getting their food off the grill rednecks. Th video above is the epitome !!

is that in Ridgeland, Pearl, Madison, or Brandon?

How many kids witnessed this and will assume this is acceptable behavior? Sometimes sports is about the parents and not the kids.

I saw something like this a few years ago at the retirement village olympics.
Walkers were bent, wheel chairs were overturned, walking canes broken.

notice how everyone involved is fat. obesity is now a public health crisis but no-one wants to acknowledge it. this is how most americans get their exercise and then go to the ballfield snack bar for dinner.

Looks like Jackson to me. Too many butt ugly people.

Those women rushing in to help pull people apart should be careful. They could trip and fall and crush some of the guys fighting.

This may be Tennessee, but it could so easily be Ridgeland or Madison with the ubiquitous attire of XXXL t-shirts, cargo shorts, and ball caps to "hide" the male pattern baldness. The men are all hopped up on Michelob Ultra and Five Hour Energy, with a little Viagra thrown in for good measure. Even Tammy Sue and the other Southern Belles got involved with the fisticuffs.

How many of these guys have Yeti Cooler and Salt Life stickers on their F150s? I guessing north of 50%. You KNOW that every damn one of them drives a pickup.

My favorite is the gutless fat ass in the floppy hat who stands to the side, never getting involved except to kick a guy who is on the ground (about 12 seconds in).

"Hell yeah! You don't f*ck with me! I showed that guy who was wrestling on the ground who's boss! Now I'm gonna go home and tear a piece off the old lady! I'm such a MAN!"

Don't you know that all the pineapple flags were upside down that evening!

All in front of the kids...Wonder how long that incident will be ingrained in the minds of those children?

This travel ball has gotten WAY out of hand. No longer are you asked to be on a tournament or select team. Now as long as you and a group of parents can pay for it you can start your own, pay for coaches, and call your kid a travel/tournament/select ball player. Its so watered down now, there are multiple little league world series taking place. It's nothing but a money maker...and those are the people hosting the tournaments.

So much about this is so pitiful I don’t know where to start. Look at the obesity as these “tough guys” roll their lard asses around on the ground “fighting”. I’m embarrassed for them just watching. They live vicariously through their children and their stupid traveling sports and think they are doing something great when in reality all they do is eat shit, talk shit, sleep in shit hotels, and are accomplishing nothing- and setting a bad example to their children by teaching them how to waste our most precious resource- time. What happened to the good ole days when you drove down the street for the little league games?

These people are barely better than the d bag who sits in Buffalo Wild Wings with his pot belly, draft beer, French fries, with another mans name on his shirt (jersey) that thinks he is a champion when his team wins the super bowl.

Where are the “nerds” ? I’d like to just hang with them

So what got this all started? What would motivate these level-headed model citizens to resort to physical violence?

Was there a dispute over a call? Maybe a disagreement over the score of a preteen girls' softball game? Perhaps one man took issue with the other's choice of college football team? Did two of these guys set to fighting over who has more Yeti cooler stickers on his rear window? Or if Costa Del Mars are cooler than Oakleys?

Maybe Bubba took the last ten deep fried chicken strips that Billy Bob wanted. It could have been a dispute of Krispy Kreme vs. Dunkin between two obvious donut aficionados. Could one have owed the other some money for his half of the case of Double Stuf Oreos they bought at Sam's Club?

Maybe one said, "Yore wife ain't curvy, she's fat!"

Of course, this could have been just a massive sugar crash, looking at the collective tons of human flesh that engaged in this spontaneous melee.

Guess we'll never know.

Not that I read every comment here in detail, but I don't see that anyone mentioned this appears to have happened at a GIRLS. SOFTBALL. GAME. Good Lord!

Guy in the orange hat started it. Must be a Tennessee Vol.

Cynical Sam said...

There is so much win in some of the comments above. The Yeti cooler and Salt Life sticker comments are spot on.

White trash be white trash.

Richard Kimble was only after money said...

Did anyone go to the Instagram site where this video is hosted and see the clip of the Mississippi State fan who told the reporter (with not even a touch of apprehension) that his brother-in-law sold his prosthetic leg so he and his wife could go to Omaha?

And people are saying this fight clip is redneck...

The real question is how much does a used prosthetic leg go for?

Imagine the comments if these people were black and this was in Jackson

I swear I think I saw a woman throw a shoe. I can't pause it though.

Several women had no problem jumping in the middle. Awesome.

his brother-in-law sold his prosthetic leg so he and his wife could go to Omaha

Sorry, I misquoted this incredibly classy and dignified MSU fan. He actually said his wife's boyfriend sold his prosthetic leg on Craigslist, so they get some alone time and he gets to go to Omaha.

There's too much to unpack in that statement that I'm not even going to try. What happens in Starkvegas stays in Starkvegas (thank God!)

9:31, you seem sincere in not realizing that the guy was trolling. Google it if you don’t know what that means. I also believe the news station was in on the joke. If it’s getting hard to tell the difference between fun and reality, perhaps it’s time to step away from the internet in search of something more in tune with your age...fishing perhaps???

Anonymous said...

9:12 and 9:31, are you really so dense that you completely missed that it was a joke? The guy was joking with the reporter during a rain delay.

Anonymous said...

The joke with Terry Powell and the prosthetic leg is because the last time MS State was in Omaha as well as this time, the media was always asking how all these Mississippi people afforded to travel and stay in Omaha for so long. It was a dig at that train of thought from people "not from 'round here".

Know what OMAHA stands for.....?

Oh look a bunch of Chris McDaniel supporters south of Interstate 20.

Fat MAGA said...

Whenever it's a bunch of brothers fighting, someone invariably calls them Obama supporters. I think it's safe to say that we're watching a bunch of good old boy Trump supporters here.

Looks like they need to build a wall around the ballpark.

MAKE GIRLS SOFTBALL GREAT AGAIN!

this is why I hate athletics, coaches, and other parents. Fuck team sports, it doesn't teach anything other than win at all costs and how to grow up and be a dick. All those parents should be rounded up by CPS and drug screened and have their kids removed until they learn how to act.

Anonymous said...

For a second there, I thought that was a Pelahatchie Board Meeting...but then I didn’t see any black people.

Anonymous said...

I sure hope the little girls who were there learn some things from this incident:

1) It's just a game.
2) It's embarrassing to watch grown-ups act like kids.
3) Nobody wins in these things.
4) Daddy shouldn't drink at a ball game, even if the beer is stored in his overpriced lockable cooler.
5) Metabolism slows down in your 20s so be prepared or it will give you a good ass-kicking.
6) Eating exclusively at McDonald's and Mama Hamil's will mess you up, both physically and mentally.
7) If dad will do this in public, imagine what he does to mama in private (i.e. she hasn't been tripping on the stairs all these years).
8) Most people should not wear sleeveless shirts - this especially applies to lard ass guys who think their flabby upper arms are chiseled gunboats (e.g. Mr. Camo Shorts in the video)
9) Most people should not wear shorts - this especially applies to gals who shop at Catherine's and Dress Barn Woman (e.g. most of the "ladies" in the video).
10) Being Southern doesn't necessarily mean you have to act like the Honey Boo Boo clan, even if your parents do.

What's with the girls down below the fight in that fenced in enclosure? The audacity to not point out that atrocity out while there is scrutiny on the FBI, DOJ, and the Clintons.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
