Summary
Instead of volunteering to provide halftime snacks, a dedicated Soccer Dad decides to join his son's soccer team. In a hilarious role reversal, the son becomes the frustrated expert who teaches his dad how to be a team player. Dad complains about having to play defense (boring!) and thinks playing soccer is all about winning. When his son explains that soccer is about having fun, Dad picks dandelions, fools around on the sidelines and kicks the practice balls everywhere. When his son further explains that having fun also means participating and getting your head in the game, Dad plays like he's the only one on the field, groans loudly when the other team scores a goal and throws a hairy fit when another player accidentally trips him. The boy's patience and understanding are tested over and over again as he tries to desperately--and finally successfully!--instruct his father on how to behave on the field."--
