HBO's State of Play

Anyone see this last night? Very interesting about wacky parents thinking they're making the next best sports prodigy.

Sad really.

Check it out - worth the effort

I saw a bit of it.
The girl golfer's dad was insane.
The old USC QB looks like a cast member from Breaking Bad.

Yea that guy was a nutter.

I particularly liked it when his walking away from the kid talking under his breath "stoopid bitch", nice - the girl looks to be about 8 years old.

Hey dad thanks for toughening me up. Dad of the year award for him.

And Todd Marijuanovich looks bad, maybe too much sun for ole pale skin. He doesn't look a day over 70.

I watched for about a minute and had to turn it off. I get so mad at abusive parents and feel so sorry for kids who are at their mercy. It's too much and I don't want to watch it.

HBO has a longer (~1:45) version of Trophy Kids from which that episode of State of Play is based. Same kids and parents, much more insanity...
