Cry Babies On And Off The Court - The Sad State Of Today's Parenting
Earlier this week David Ferrer made headlines in a match he was getting crushed in, and eventually lost, after lobbing a tennis ball into the stands "in the direction" of a crying baby. I have included the video at the end of this blog so you can scroll down or if you're lazy click HERE.
Ferrer, who happened to be the #6 ranked player in the world, took a bashing in all the media outlets taking about how a professional athlete should have more control and just because there was crying baby in the stands doesn't mean there should be one on the court.
The question no one seems to be asking is what the fuck is a baby doing at a tennis match? How stupid/ignorant/selfish do the parents have to be to bring a young baby to a tennis match?
It doesn't take a genius to know that during the point the audience is supposed to be as quiet as possible so the players can concentrate, it's been that way since before the beginning of time, hell when the dinosaurs were on the earth they knew to keep quiet during a fucking tennis match, but not these selfish pricks.
It's bad enough that these knuckleheads bring a baby to a tennis match but why on earth when the little brat started crying do you just sit there and let the little bugger annoy not only the players but everybody sitting within earshot? I can't imagine how annoying it would be to have paid for tickets and hear nothing but a snot nosed baby crying a fucking river while the parents tap it on the head and go "sssssh!"
Here's an idea, get up off your fat lazy stupid asses and remove the baby from the situation, newsflash you assholes just because you have a child doesn't GIVE YOU ANY RIGHT to inconvenience other people AT ANY TIME. Just a little respect for others people is all that was needed here.
As for Ferrer, I certainly don't condone launching tennis balls into the stands but in this case, I see nothing wrong with what he did, he didn't cause injury to anyone and the ball wasn't even close to the baby- which may speak more for his aim and why he lost in straight sets, 7-5 6-2.
