James Harrison, linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, did something that will get him labeled as a bad dad in the eyes of libs, but we love it.
When his sons came home with participation trophies for their athletic abilities, he sent them right back. He didn’t want his boys to be pussified by this generation’s ‘everybody wins’ mantra – because the reality is that only the people who work hard and persevere are the ones who win in life.
He posted the picture of the trophies to Facebook with the following caption:
I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I’m not about to raise to boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues
