Imagine this. Your child has his biggest game of his life. It’s the high school state title game or the town championship that everyone wants to attend.
The whole town is talking about the "big game," but there’s a catch: You need a ticket to go to this game and there is limited seating. So, how do you get a ticket? Well, the ticket-holders are the actual players in the game. Each player is given two tickets that he can give to anyone he wants. So, who does your son give the coveted tickets to?
His friends? Nope.
His parents, right? Unfortunately, even mom and dad have to try and stream the game live on GameChanger or watch highlights on the local news.
When asked, most kids opt to hand over their tickets to the people who embody what they want out of a sports parent — their grandparents.
