T.J. Smith, son of 49ers receiver Torrey Smith, went to an amusement park with his parents yesterday and learned a hell of a lot about expectation versus reality.

T.J.’s mom Chanel posted a video of her son before he went on the roller coaster, and another of him during the ride. He did not like the ride:
