Minivans, “soccer mom” label sucks

June 6, 2008

Minivans suck. “Soccer moms” must suck too.

Stephanie Torgerson, 32, of Pataskala, Ohio, said she simply can’t put her three boys in her husband’s Mazda 626. The 1-year-old needs a car seat, the 5-year-old needs a booster chair and she doesn’t feel comfortable wedging her 8-year-old between the two.

Sure, she could probably get better mileage in a minivan, but she doesn’t like the stigma.

“I don’t want to be labeled as a soccer mom,” she said.

 And this lady has it easy. Embarrassed soccer moms in Europe have it even worse.
