Some people handle losing better than others. Take Steven Wilson, 52, of Eagan, MN: he, apparently does NOT take losing well. His 14-year-old son plays basketball for the 8th grade team and was involved in a tournament earlier this month when the team lost. Afterwards, Wilson allegedly yelled, pushed the kid into a wall, and then punched his son in front of other parents and other fans who eventually alerted police. While questioning Wilson about the incident, the investigating officer told the profanity-using Wilson to watch his language. At that point, Mr. Wilson allegedly leaned toward the officer, looked him directly in the eye and used more profanity.
Some parents support their children’s athletic efforts and some parents REALLY support their kid’s athletic efforts. This lady REALLY wants to support her cheerleading daughter. This appears to have taken place at the Louisiana High School Athletic Association Cheerleading Championships this week in Lake Charles.

Here’s some video I shot at the 2011 LHSAA Cheer & Dance Competition held in Lake Charles December 3, 2011. Mom cheering on her daughter from Archbishop Hannan High School.
Possibly the best 2 minutes of the whole competition. I’m sure her daughter was proud to have her there.
In case you were wondering, it was a little boy that was missing. It was announced after the next squad performed that he was found safe.
