Parents from the two opposing teams almost came to blows and bloodshed while watching from the bleachers. This wasn’t a game with the World Cup at stake. These were 5-year-olds on the field.

It made me wonder what these five-year-old witnesses had to say after the game as the juice boxes and orange slices were passed out.
