Dom, it was nice read. Nice to see passion once in a while, misdirected as it may be.
Yep, kids hear bad words all the time, I did when I was growing up. I went to games with my dad and heard some, but the public drunken bafoons and the alarming amount of violence is what worries me.
I took my son to a game last year ONLY because our ceo gave me her suite tickets. We had a good time, but I would not take him into the seats I can afford.
I just hope the same doesn't happen in baseball and hockey, where I still feel at ease taking my son for a night out.
Now, back to your steeler hating, dom, while I go put on my "Got RIngs" T-shirt. :-)
