I can be beaten at the most embarrassing parent game

Wonderful story in today's Herald that I thought you would enjoy - and is sure to be told in the family stories of whichever family it happened to. Right up there with the condom suit in the Square.


How'd you feel if it was your parent?

o picture this - Under 10 rugby game being played in Auckland on Saturday. Little Year 5 (Std 3 for Adrian) children happily running around rugby field; 30 proud parents and family members standing on side line. Referee, who is a volunteer, doing his best to referee the game. Awards a try. Parent standing on the sideline thinks s/he can do a better job than the ref so runs onto the field; telling (well yelling at) the ref with where they are going wrong in quite colourful language and grabs ref around the throat.

Referees day job is a policeman - so parent is arrested!
