Football Father Rejects Participation Trophies
Professional linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, James Harrison said:
"I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies!
trophies for nothing
While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best...cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better...not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut you up and keep you happy."
OMG, this dad is not a liberal wus, he's a winner! He's a real man, living in the real world. And his kids will thank him when they grow up.

You think EVERYBODY should have gotten a trophy like this, just for playing?
