This was posted on Deadspin. I have not laughed this hard in a very long time. My favorite part of the video is the mom screaming, “Come on!” She is pissed. I feel her pain. She is just realizing she wasted hours of her life driving her daughter to and from crew practice. This is when you tell your child they need a new hobby. Rowing is not their sport. Parents think they have to praise their children no matter what. However, there comes a time when you have to throw in the towel. Sometimes no matter how hard you practice you just suck. You don’t have to tell your kids to their face how much they suck. Encourage them to do something else. Encourage them to do anything other than embarrass themselves. Otherwise, you are wasting their time, yours and you will end up being just like the lady screaming on this video
This weekend’s Snowflake Regatta in Riverhead, New York, had to have the least competent group of rowers ever assembled in one place.
