OK, so WOI, our local ABC station, just did a story on how the professional sports stars who are viewed by kids as role models, such as Kobe Bryant, are confusing kids and putting parents in akward situations. Yet throughout the entire piece they show nothing but young kids playing soccer games. The parents and coaches they interviewed were all from these soccer games. Then they end it saying that most parents they talked to said the kids are too young to even look up and follow professional athletes, such as Kobe Bryant. I'm not sure what to think of this, but it felt odd and I thought I'd post about it. While watching the footage I just sat there scratching my head asking why the media was asking soccer parents/coaches about problems that, in the US anyone, exist in sports other than soccer.
