Wow! What a surprise! We are somewhat new to the area and thought we would check out the Amador High School football game tonight as it was the last home game of the season. It seemed as though it would be a good "family friendly" Friday night activity.
I could not believe the things that we witnessed tonight OFF the field. I have read posts on here several times before about teens drinking in Pleasanton, parents being unaware of what their teens are up to, and a few posts regarding parents that KNOW, but simply don't care what their teens are doing.
Here is what we witnessed.
First...the good news.....
We saw a school community come together with tons of spirit to cheer on their team, we saw (the first half) of a very competitive football game, we saw an outstanding band perform, and we saw several other families sitting together making the most of the evening.
Now...the bad news...
Many of the girls from Amador in the student section (and the boys too), have no respect for their own privacy and their own sexuality.
We saw one girl allow her boyfriend to put his hand up her skirt (her cheerleading skirt) (portion removed by Pleasanton Weekly staff) SEVERAL times as they kissed the entire first half. While he wasn't busy with his hand up her skirt, his hands were all over her chest (portion edited by PW staff)
Another girl kept shoving, yes shoving, her boyfriends face into her chest (portion edited by PW staff).
We were trying to watch the game, but they were standing right in front of us doing this so we left at halftime.
I think it is really sad that these kids do not respect themselves enough to at least do this in private. Girls wonder how they get reputations as "easy" but then when you are going at it at a football game, in front of your classmates, teachers, friends, parents, etc... it is no wonder.
As we were walking out at half time, my husband and I were talking about the behavior we saw from students and then we saw something that was by far, a lot worse than what the students were doing....
Parents, yes a group of parents, (and we wonder why teens are drinking and driving), were out in the parking lot at halftime, getting wasted out of the backseat of their Suburban. There were probably 6-8 parents standing around smoking cigars (on a school campus) drinking vodka mixed with red bull that was stored in an ice chest in their backseat.
What a great example they are setting for their children!! How pathetic can you be? I mean really?? At a high school football game??? Yeah....you parents are so cool....They are probably the same parents that allow their teens to host parties where alcohol is served. Because....they are the COOL parents.
Anyway....I just wanted to put this out there to see if there would be discussion on it....I found it very interesting.
