One mom called in saying her daughters are in a competitive league and as a jr. in high school she already has a full ride for collage.

Vijay and Jamie you were just watching this video these parents fighting. It is softball game. I used sub ball game not like an adult softball game I youth softball game yeah I think after twelve years old and the players this was in not thinking sport tennis acres of but you know you days. People to have these kids that are on travel teams because that was a travel situation. I think a couple of those teams were from somewhere around some relief from that area and they got this big huge spike. Would these kids that are on these travel teams is that right. Did he get caught in this city and we should never have. I kind of feel like she's a Smart answer it yes because you've committed yourself in your child and you don't would disappoint your child and I get and I do get it. But my Brothers and your friends about the care of some kind of rhetoric about the parent. And you know I was just wondering though if he'd because it's very expensive at some point when you catch yourself you know you have a good drive down the Phoenix Arizona for a weekend the play with the kids in this saw a baseball eagle what are related injury and it DR think to yourself one of a do it week we could be doing this sport right there in in Colorado. I also wonder wind because much my son's. And like best buddies he's on a travel team and that may take him out of school. He even leaves on Thursdays and Fridays ago that it had played an early cool I mean is supposed to do that are. But I do have dealt. Always keep digging kids out of school I go take a trip I think a lot of kids do. Read this to go and traveled and boy oh boy what happened would just letting you know in Europe like your own zip code because there are gonna be. Huge professional athletes don't you know that's. But also thinking you active guard and yeah. That's Wednesday it's more about the parents and again I think some of the kids like. You're telling me that the majority of people that are on these travel teams these parents believed that their child it would save baseball or basketball one day of their child yeah the NBA or Major League sport is here in the capital of the hockey. Yeah and that's investment yeah there are going to be probably snuck out ol' yeah yeah. Rob Lowe's. Even our aren't doing my own bosh Angela her son is in LA and he's on a hockey travel team and they come to Colorado to play as well because hockey is a really big deal the travel teams are really good here right it's so they'll come here to play and Beckham and others aren't is gone brought. And I think she thinking it's yeah it's fourteen. So assuming they were doing it just to. Get better competition because you're going out of the area when not in that it which I think is Crockett itself but but they're getting better competition. And it needs to leave it at that but I just don't understand what they invest that much money from home and because. Oh you're gonna pay him back because your kids can play professional all of mile per adult you see I'm. I'm glad they are they're not that good hello I got to be pro athletes but still chances. It doesn't some Debbie that got a thousand kids out here that are twelve years old playing baseball or basketball or hot. Aren't telling my son and they can be a professional drummer.
