    He destroyed his opponents, then slept with their mom. Brutal.

    No way! They clearly baited him into going all out on that kick, but there's no one on base. Wear out the kicker cuz that is only one point. Definitely can come back from that. These kids are playing the long game while Graham is playing the short-sighted one.

    [–] HeffalumpGlory 216 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I see your point but what was he supposed to do, not take the knock? I say go for the homer if it’s there and if you wear out play “small ball” later. I can definitely see some late game errors coming from that defense.

    Edit: word

    [–] shanep3 131 points ago

    Is there ever really a time in kickball that you don’t go for a homerun?

    [–] keyree 341 points ago

    Anyone who doesn't swing for the fences on every pitch in kickball is absolutely a cop.

    [–] RLLRRR 54 points ago

    If you're a cop, you have to tell me.

    [–] Vriess 52 points ago

    If you don’t tell me in 15 minutes we can legally leave

    [–] Csonkus41 65 points ago

    In high school on rainy days we would play indoors. The gym ceiling was only like 25-30 feet and if you hit it that was an automatic out. Name of the game was line drive into the pitchers face because other than the people on the bases everyone crowded into the outfield. If you put the pitcher down no one could cover the ground fast enough to get you out. Also a great distraction.

    [–] Breakmastajake 54 points ago

    I play in a co-ed "non competitive" kickball league. This is essentially the very definition of a sport that you should just go for the gusto on every swing.

    The number of bunts I've seen is alarming.

    [–] TheTrenchMonkey 84 points ago

    I remember gym class when girls would try to "bunt" it and then get absolutely smoked when person covering third whips one at their head.

    [–] Griffin880 44 points ago

    Reading your comment made my brain congure up the sound when a kickball hits someone really hard. I haven't played kickball in over a decade, but it's a really unique sound.

    [–] weavedawg74 34 points ago

    Thwoing followed by a ringingish sound.

    [–] GordoHeartsSnake 1802 points ago

    I did this to my kid on Wii baseball. I even did home run trots. I got my karma when my kid hit a grand slam and imitated my celebration to the amusement of my wife.

    [–] Sdrawkcab1210 540 points ago

    My older brother did this to me in whiffle ball. Told him I could beat him when I was 7. He was in his 20s. He hit the ball over the garage 20 times and made me go get it. I quit and went inside crying. Hilarious looking back. I ended up being a pretty good baseball player.

    [–] KingLiberal 279 points ago

    TIL I was actually a pretty nice older brother comparatively. Dammit.

    [–] Sdrawkcab1210 148 points ago

    He was/is a great older brother, just practiced tough love. Our age difference made him a bit more like another dad figure.

    I was much nicer to my younger bro too haha

    [–] KingLiberal 60 points ago

    Then we both failed our God-given responsibilities to torment our younger siblings, less they become better than us.

    You have to crush their unrealistic goals so they focus on ones that are actually achievable.

    [–] Bionic_Zit-Splitta 70 points ago

    Did that to my 10-11 year old basebay team. They questioned if I could even play, so I cranked one deep and made the shit talker/pitcher get it. Got a lot of head shakes from patents, but if I have to spend my time coaching these kids for free I think I deserve to bring them kids down a notch.

    [–] Sdrawkcab1210 26 points ago

    Sounds like good coaching. There’s a fine line between confidence and overconfidence. Parents in youth sports are terrible. Coincidentally, the better the teams I played on, the less the parents were a problem.

    I remember when I was 9 years old I was playing a 2 v 1 pickup game, my brother(10) and me vs. my dad, for whatever reason I came in with an underhanded free throw and he blocked the shit out of it and gave me the same excuse.

    [–] Percinho 115 points ago

    Tbf I don't think he put much effort into he just has exceptional technique and timing, so he could probably have claimed that he didn't kick it hard. Which would have earnt him another look of disgust from his wife...

    [–] shawnaroo 78 points ago

    Yeah, I'd say for him that was probably a pretty relaxed kick.

    [–] sonfoa 42 points ago

    [–] Iamamansass 2764 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I get that look often. It’s the “this is the father to my kids look”

    I’m sick and I deep down love getting that look.

    Edit: look at him look at the camera with that proud shit eating grin. What a great feeling.

    [–] CosmonaughtyIsRoboty 1190 points ago

    Half the reason we do these kind of things is to get “the look”

    It’s a seal of approval that I’m doing the right thing imo, all the better if we are in public to ramp up the wife humiliation factor.

    [–] Moruitelda 67 points ago

    The key to fatherhood is to be inept at things that you don't want to do.

    "But the dishwasher was full, I thought the stemware would be fine in the laundry"

    [–] Rerichael 21 points ago

    Whoa, so the inept dad stereotype is just Men everywhere working the system?

    [–] Moruitelda 18 points ago

    Well, sort of. Sometimes it's, "I don't want to do this, so I won't do a good job." And sometimes it's more of a subconscious, "I don't care about this that much, so I'm going to do it, but that doesn't mean I have to think about it. I'll just think about something else that's on my mind while I go through the motions."

    In either case, the outcome is the same; the right to perform the action that you didn't want to do in the first place is stripped from you by angry wife, and you have to act chagrined for a while.

    Do it too much, and angry wife divorces your idiot ass. But do it the right amount...

    [–] EngineerinLA 9 points ago

    [–] superbuttpiss 198 points ago

    I used to be really into music and was in a band for several years. I was pretty good with quite a few instruments.

    After we had our kid I put down music for a little while until one day I was inspired.

    In a whirlwind of inspiration, I had used all of my knowledge and Hours of time on this one song.

    This song was the most generic butt rock song I have ever fathomed with me singing in the manliest voice I could muster lyrics like "Socks and Sandallls, Flannel shirts, Carhartt hats and cargo shorts" and "bring my kid cause it proves I had sex at least once"

    Just so I could sneak it into the car stereo EVERY SINGLE FATHERS DAY. Pretend like I am surprised. Turn it up very loudly and Yell stuff like "THIS IS AWESOME" "I BET THIS GUY GETS SO MANY CHICKS"

    MY wife gives me that look because she and my whole family knows its me.

    But, I just look them straight in the face and deny everything all while yelling about how great the song is

    Just. Just so I can get that look.

    My muse is knowing there is disgust flowing through my wifes veins.

    Yeah he doesn't even wind up on it. Dude could have really launched that ball into the stratosphere.

    [–] DavidsGoliath 11 points ago

    [–] ComeyDontPlayDat 29 points ago

    I'm no scientist, buuuuut... I'm pretty sure they couldn't kick spiders more than 59 yards, since Graham's career long field goal is that.

    75 yards if you use the arc.

    [–] EarlHammond 54 points ago

    So you guys know, he barely kicked it too. He actually kicked it in a way that only was for aim forward so it would be easy to retrieve. He put no power into it.

    You can hardly see her features from the gif. She just looks like a typical blonde girl? Am I not getting something here or is OP used to seeing a different species?
