Just part of our culture I guess
That's EXACTLY why I am asking, I am English but seem to be expected to know American popular culture as well.

a soccer mom is most likely a very good mother, she tries very hard to be a good mom, maybe to hard, even an over achiever as far as moms go, she will go to all her kids sporting events, and even some bake sales,,, she will take her kids and other neighbor-hood school kids to the sporting events, (yes in her mini van), then after the sporting event she may bring them all back to her home and feed them a snack and a cool drink such as soda (pop),,, then they are all off to the swimming hole

Ruff,

You forgot to describe the cell phone permanently attached to arm and ear, and the head at least ten inches up her ass. Your statement "she is the center of the world" is SO true... yet she wouldn't notice a nuclear burst a quarter-mile in front of her.

But ya know what? I've been a cop for twenty-five years. And, without a doubt, the most arrogant, self-centered, downright asshole group of people I've ever dealt with have been the parents of young soccer players; aside from french tourists, of course. What's more amazing is that these are affluent and educated people.

I dunno what the deal is, but this soccer business is like a religion nowadays. And the SUV has become a big-time status symbol. That's a bummer, because it put them out of reach, price-wise, from we normal folks who NEED the damn thing to transport our models... there sim[ly isn't any justice, let me tell you...

at least a soccer mom shows great (relatively speaking at least) about her kids. it's something that cannot be said about MANY parents nowadays.

it is very stupid to promote flying on the street. all it takes is only an accident or two when some driver is distracted and runs over a kid or something to get our hobby in a lot of legal trouble.

i can't believe whoever approved the ad did not consult his insurance company for possible legal liability issues.

BETTER LAWS ARE WHAT WE NEED!!!

Probably what is needed is an R/C accident background check and a 10 day "cooling off" period before one can actually take a park flyer home. Of course a child proof transmitter lock and training by a state approved instructor are mandatory.

I think maybe "Soccermom" was a rush limbaugh euphamisim, maybe?

Anyway, if a person, soccermom, was to crash and kill a bunch of kids when there was a parkflier flying near by, there would be no mention of the cellphone jammed in her ear and the rearview mirror bent over sideways so she can put on her lipstick, and the cotton balls between her fingers from the nail job she is giving herself. It wouldn't be mentioned that the hot McDonalds coffee just singed her snatch while she was beating someone elses kid for not being quiet while watching her favorite episode of Martha Stewarts Playhouse on the DVD/TV that is labeled "Not to be viewed by the driver"

No, I reckon it would be all the parkflier's fault, it was distracting.

I came, I saw, I hovered

Ivan's post about covers what I missed.

Women in general are terrible drivers; not so much from a skill standpoint, but they are paying attention to everything BUT the road. Soccer moms take the word "inattention" to greater heights than one can imagine.

These women are a real hazard; every bit as much as a drunk driver, since you just have no way of knowing what they are going to do next. But watch the show of indignance when they get involved in a wreck, regardless of who is at fault- and notice I didn't say "accident". In 25 years and hundreds of wrecks I worked, there were exactly TWO that were bona fide accidents. The rest were because someone had their head up their ass or was driving foolishly; period.
