Soccer Fan Is "Dad of the Year" For Holding Phone So Kid Can Watch TV

Like walking and chewing gum at the same time, parenting while watching your favorite sports team is tricky. But an Atlanta dad seems to have found an amazing hack for keeping his kid distracted so he can take in a game.

On Monday, Twitter user Taylor Scalera tweeted video of an unidentified fan at an Atlanta United soccer match intently watching his team while holding his smartphone behind his back around hip level.

As the footage shows, the phone is streaming a kids' TV show, allowing the child seated next to him to contentedly watch her favorite entertainment while he watches his. 

Scalera even declared that this guy is "dad of the year."
