What could be moonbattier than kids playing soccer instead of baseball or football? Playing soccer with no score so that everybody can pretend they won. What could be moonbattier still? Let’s head north of the border to find out:
With the growing concern over the effects of competition in youth sports programs this summer, many Canadian soccer associations eliminated the concept of keeping score. The Soccer Association of Midlake, Ontario, however, has taken this idea one step further, and have completely removed the ball from all youth soccer games and practices.
According to Association spokesperson, Helen Dabney-Coyle, “By removing the ball, it’s absolutely impossible to say ‘this team won’ and ‘this team lost’ or ‘this child is better at soccer than that child.’”
“We want our children to grow up learning that sport is not about competition, rather it’s about using your imagination. If you imagine you’re good at soccer, then, you are.”
At this point you could believe the story is on the level. It isn’t easy to parody liberals more effectively than they parody themselves.
People who think like this run our public schools, explaining why students have higher self-esteem than ever but can no longer read or do math. They also vote, explaining why someone with a monstrous ego but without qualifications is president of the USA.
