Over-Protection Run Amok!
I caught a bit of a middle school soccer game last week and was shocked to see the goalies wearing helmets. What a ridiculous precaution!
Then Googling for images I came across the outrage above. Everyone on the field wearing freakin' helmets?!?!?!
I think in Massachusetts soccer players have to wear mouth-guards as well.
With all this padding the nannies are turning a terrific manly sport in a sissy-game a la American football.
If I was a kid again I probably wouldn't play soccer....or ride a bike if I had to wear a stupid helmet!
Categorically speaking I'm dead-set against buying or wearing protection.
