My Destiny Includes Being a Hardcore Soccer Mom.

I might have said it before, but I'll say it again.

To me, a perfect day includes a baseball game.  I swear, I could watch baseball all day long if it was socially acceptable.

An especially excellent form of baseball is when my little brother Tom plays.  When I go to his games, I go into straight up soccer mom mode.  I swear, the parents get slightly concerned because the noise level doubles when I'm in attendance.  I yell so much and so loud, it's embarrassing.

The worst is when the parents from the other team say anything even mildly negative about our team.  I swear, I suddenly turn into the protective mother bear and just yell back at every comment they make. I'll be honest, I don't make many friends at these games.

Of course, when our team makes a good play or gets a run or strikes someone out or anything, I'm just as loud and obnoxious, and I throw more than 1 or 2 "BOOYAH!"'s in their direction.

On multiple occasions, my mother has told me to settle down and stop being so loud.

I fear for any athletic event my children participate in.

Mmm...the form.
