Some interesting stories.

While I don't think girls' hockey is anywhere near as bad as boys' hockey in this regard I have seen some pretty strange things at girl's hockey games.

Hopefully Blackbird didn't miss the NP article on how Canada manipulated their dollar to increase exports but it has made almost no change except to cause an increase in costs of US goods for Canadian consumers and housing prices to jump, causing a housing crisis.

Every country tries to manipulate their currency. Problem is for countries like Canada it is somewhat of a crapshoot. When the President of the US sneezes, evreybody wonders if he has a cold. When the PM of Canada sneezes, nobody hears it.

And this has what to do with sex, bribes, and goalie moms...?

Having kids play from mites through High School I have to say I have never seen anything as bad as described in the article. Saw a lot of bad stuff but there are some real lowlights in there. Parents are the problem mostly.

The worst behaviour I personally saw was when my oldest was coaching a Bantam A team. He had a goalie dad who refused to accept that his son shouldn't be in every game. It ended when he threatened my son (a combat veteran). That didn't work so he moved the kid to a different program.

I've witnessed a few of these items first hand over my 15 year involvement in Minor hockey. The two that come to mind are the drunken stupor folks and parents from different kids hooking up with each other.

parents from different kids hooking up with each other
That is hilarious in a very sad way. But at least there was no punching involved . . . unless that came later

I sent this article to my cousin in Florida who's son played on a very good Tier II team down there, which made Nationals this past season.

This was his response:

"Even in the hockey wasteland of South Florida, I have seen almost everything in this article. It has been an interesting ride over the past 6 years of travel hockey and while I will miss the actual games, I won't miss anything else about this process."

Oh, I knew that. :-) It was all rhetorical. Though, I love your response.

I actually find his posts at times entertaining in a pity sort of way. But, this time, I just had to step in because no matter how entertaining his posts are, they can't possibly be as entertaining as sex, bribes and goalie moms.

They actually made a Hockey Mom's reality show?

I'm starting to agree with your political posts -- this country is doomed... :-)

yes, but Blackbeard is correct, the US will self destruct, not because of the petro dollar, but because of the garbage our media produces and the public consumes

If we do see a total Mad Max type of collapse of the US economy, then it is entirely possible that the Fighting Nurses out of Clarkson College in Omaha will rise up and become a power in women's hockey.

2 things were terribly disturbing in that video. At :18 there is a young lady wearing a rodent sweatshirt about to get fed a cup of celery juice. I'm not sure which thing is more disturbing.

The sad part is he can be a good commenter at times. I worry he is missing his meds though most of the time. Like many here I have him set to ignore because his signal to noise ratio is too low

Definitely a gigantic contributing factor...it's criminal actually.

Starting to head in the same direction here, slowly but surely.
