HOCKEY PLAYER’S PERSPECTIVE:
PARENTS BE AWARE
A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son.
Suddenly; the boy bursts into the kitchen. “Careful, Careful!” Put in some more butter! Oh my goodness! You’re cooking too many at once. Too Many! Turn them! Turn them now! We need more butter. Oh my! Where are we going to get more butter? They’re going to stick! Careful!… Careful! I said be Careful! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking! NEVER! Turn them! Hurry Up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! The SALT!!
The mother stared at him. “What’s wrong with you? You think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?”
The son calmly replied “I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m trying to play hockey….”
So I ask each and every parent, “How are you viewed by your son/daughter, the hockey player?”
The 2017-2018 draft is set for Thursday September 7th at 6:30pm. Players and their parents should not attend. Only coaches and club GM’s participate in the draft.
