Kid Pukes At ACC and Father Stays For Whole Game!

I know, you don’t like it when I do this but…..

Last night I had the privilege of going to the Leafs game vs. Penguins. Those of you who follow me on Twitter may know where this is going. I had Mrs. TSM, Little TSM and one of Little TSM’s buddies (the littlest TSM doesn’t care for hockey).

We had great seats, platinums, three rows behind the Leafs net.

So, there we are enjoying the game having a blast when little TSM complains that someone is kicking his seat. I look over my shoulder and there’s a 3-4 yr old kid sitting there kicking his seat. The kid’s father asked him to stop. If only I knew what revenge the kid was about to take on us.

Just after the first period ended little kicker puked. Yes, upchucked, yacked, tossed his cookies. Thankfully, his dad had a Tupperware container to, ummm, contain the yack.

Now, those of you dad’s out there, I ask you, what do you do in the situation? You take the kid home right?

Not this guy.

No, he takes his kid, the sick one to the bathroom to clean him up. He leaves his other kid, who I am guessing is 6 by himself at the seats.

Now, the sick kid while projectialing, happened to leave some drool on the back of little TSM’s friend seat and it stank. So, Mrs. TSM asked an usher if someone could come clean it up.

Shortly after the second period started the clean up crew arrived. They cleaned the back of the seat.

Now, all you parents, if your kid puked and someone had to come clean the seat in which he soiled, you would at the very least apologize right?

Not our guy.

So with the sick kid lying in the prone position in his seat, the game continued. Until a little later in the period when he puked again!

Now, those of you dad’s out there, I ask you, what do you do in the situation? You take the kid home right?

Not this guy.

Nope, off he went, with one sick kid in tow to clean him up, leaving behind his other kid.

The ushers, having seen this sent over a medic when the father was back to see if the kid was okay to which the father replied, “oh yeah, he’s fine.”

Then the kid scored the hat trick when just before the end of the period he yacked yet again!

Now, those of you dad’s out there, I ask you, what do you do in the situation? You take the kid home right?

Not this guy.

His kid pukes 3 times and he still sticks it out.

Here is where it gets really good.

The ushers pretty much pleaded with the guy not to return to his seat with sick kid for the third. What did he do? He stayed out in the entrance with the sick kid, leaving his 6 year old ALL ALONE in the seats. The poor kid was solo the whole period.

Thankfully for the sick kid the game went into overtime. I mean nothing is better for a sick kid then staying at the ACC until after 10pm right?

Super dad let his kid sit by himself through OT too, to the point that when the game ended, complete strangers sitting around the abandoned kid had to help him collect his belongings and then find his dad and sick brother.

Dear parents, if your kid is puking at a sports game, do your kid and everyone around you a favour and go home, PLEASE

Ok, I feel better rant over….

I have lots of news on the media side coming- stay tuned tomorrow
