The Good ol' Hockey Game

I read about this video at cbc.ca. I'm not as good at reading my daily news e-mails as I used to be, but since today is a "snow day" and I have a bit of leisure time, I decided to flip through and see what was happening in the world.

That's when I found this video:

I'd say that he had some help with the speech and his actions, but the message is true, and not just for hockey. It's called a game for a reason. That kind of abuse is one of the many reasons why I will not ever sign my kids up for hockey. When they're 3, they don't know differently and I'd rather that they play something that doesn't carry as much baggage as hockey does in Canada.
