During Friday’s Cavaliers-Hornets game, this father came prepared to teach his son a lesson about doing well in school. He brought a sign to the game that told his son Thomas to fix his grades, and if he does, he’ll get to attend another Cavs game.
USA Today photographer Jeremy Brevard captured the tough love:
And if you’re wondering if he got on TV with that sign, according to Reddit, he did:
Thomas, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re doing alright after getting burned by your dad via his sign. I hope, in the years to come, you can look back at this and laugh a bit at what your dad did. Grades aside, the fact that he went to FedEx to print out a poster-sized sign about you means that he cares about your education.
Also, the use of the teary-eyed emoji probably stings a bit, but it’s also hilarious. Your dad Googled “crying emoji” and printed it out. That’s how much he cares: he printed out an emoji. That’s kind of respectable on that front.
Feel free to use this tactic on your own basketball-loving children, Thomas.
