1. The Assister
Did the ref miss a call? Not a problem. This dad is here to help, uhh, politely correct his mistakes.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “Hey Ref! [Expletive] [Expletive] you [Expletive] can [Expletive] in [Expletive] [Expletive] [Expletive] [Expletive] [Expletive].”
2. The Cheerleader
At least he’s wearing a mask.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “Oh, don’t be a stick in the mud, honey. Everyone’s loving this! Just look at those kids over there pointing and laughing.”
3. The Play Caller
The only thing better than having a coach on the court is having a coach in the bleachers. Make sure you listen to him or you’re grounded.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “COME ON… PICK AND ROLL, RICKY!”
4. The Courtside Dad
Sometimes the excitement is too extreme to remain seated all game.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “I don’t care if you can’t see, that’s my girl out there!”
5. The “I Used To Be Pretty Good Myself” Dad
Nice job hitting the game-winning shot. Back in his day, this dad hit like 30 game-winning shots… in the snow… with no arms or legs.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “Son, you remind me of a smaller, less talented version of myself.”
6. The “I Taught You Everything You Know” Dad
Success is a journey, not a destination… just remember who drove you to success town: DAD.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “Good thing I taught you how to walk so you could score 100 points today. You’re welcome.”
7. The Email Checker
It’s either an important update from the office, or he can’t figure out how to turn the flash off.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: *Murmurs something as he stares blankly into his Blackberry*
8. The “Am I Cool Yet?” Dad
You can find him in the student section.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “You guys played like you only YOLO once.”
9. The Papa-Razzi
Sure you missed that free throw with :02 left to tie the game because the flash from his camera went off in your face. Look on the bright side: At least he left the lens cap on.
NOTABLE QUOTABLE: “Look at all the great shots your dad had tonight.”
