Dad uses signs at basketball games to call out son's bad grades

CLEVELAND, OH (KTVI) -- A dad in Cleveland is being praised for a sign he made Friday, shaming his son and reminding him that if he gets his grades up, he'll be able to come see the Cavaliers in person. The first sign he brought to a game read, "Thomas, get your grades back up and next time you'll be here. love, dad." It even includes a sad emoji!
