Looking at the future of one our friends

You know the stories you’ve read about how parents can take coaching their kids’ soccer teams a little too seriously.  Hell, you might even remember the movie “Kicking & Screaming” with Will Ferrell. 

I saw this story on The Sporting News Blog and immediately thought that I think I know this guy.

“Kinahan actually did and said the following:

-- Called his team of six and seven year old girls by the name of "Green Death."

-- Allegedly chewed out a 12-year-old ref so badly she quite officiating.

-- Advised his players to eat "undercooked red meat."

-- Told them to take the field "like a Michael Vick pit bull."

-- Informed parents that this was not "two hours of free babysitting," and that he was not going to tolerate them sitting on the sidelines “in their LL Bean chairs sipping mocha-latte-half-caf-chinos” and not cheering.”

So, we have a friend who just had a son a month or so ago…for those of you who know who I’m talking about…is it too far to imagine him doing this?
