Things That Make You Go Hmmmm….

Posted by shotfromthepoint on November 30, 2008

Well, we survived another weekend of hockey.  Kristen had two practices, and Jack had two practices, and a great win over Port Perry 9-2…The nicest part was taking Grandpa out for his 77th birthday lunch at the Mandarin on Saturday; when Papa read his fortune, he jokingly said “Jack will score 2 goals and get one assist”…Well, karma’s name was Papa George, because that’s exactly what happened!

We also heard this week that our Pub Night Fundraiser for Kristen’s team raised $3715, which is just phenomenal (I am now an expert at making Jello shooters, so let me know if you need help for Xmas!)

Things that make you go Hmmmm…seems like a certain former team of Rick’s is having some issues this year (go figure)…After some PP’s (Problem Parents) insisted on a new Coach, this year the new Coach has taken two years’ worth of Rick’s hard work and put a former fifth placed team down to last place and has had one player quit, and others are very unhappy, so the grapevine goes…Ah, karma is a bitch, isn’t it, hockey fans?

The problem now is, the team has to replace the player, and GUESS WHAT?  are coming to Rick for help…(again, Karma, I love you, you are my hero)…too bad, nobody wants to go from a winning third place team where kids come first and there is lots of fun and laughter to a last placed team where the kids are screamed at and the big W is the only goal…

Another GUESS WHAT?  Those same PP’s have their wagons circling around the present Coach and are looking to replace him!  (Oops, did I say that out loud?)

The biggest problem with rep sports is that they let the parents into the arena.  Not one of our kids is going to the Show, so why do parents insist on butting in where they have no business to?  Do I sound bitter?  You bet!  These PP’s attacked my family and husband, who is volunteering his time and has done so for years to ensure that children are taught and developed to their full potential.  Say and do what you want to me, I could care less…attack my family, and Mrs. PITBULL comes out (no lipstick required)…

Stay tuned…
