I was at a rink this Saturday and overheard a parent explaining that their club was a AA Plus, we're between AA and tier one!? So since another team beat this AA Plus team 5 to 1, does that make them a AA PLus, Plus Plus and put them between AA and the NHL? Put brain in motion before opening mouth!
I'm assuming you don't include yourself in this group, and I certainly don't include myself, so why generalize with 'Hockey Parents' when one delusional soul speaks stupidly? How about: what's wrong with some hockey parents? or, what's wrong with hockey parents whose kids stink? or, whats wrong with the hockey parent sitting in the fifteenth row, fourth from the end, wearing the blue hoodie and napolean dynamite desert boots?
Sounds to me like an unfortunate way of saying that they think their kid's team is a strong AA team. Possibly they would have rephrased if they knew that you were eavesdropping and would report the comments on eteamz.
Imabee, No not eavesdropping, person was pretty loud about it! Ace High, OK, maybe should change to "What's wrong with SOME Hockey Parents"! As far as some of the pictures you drew in response (Napoleon Dynamite boots, etc), pretty disturbing!
Have you seen some of the early morning dirty pony tails and mesh baseball caps that show up at the rink? THAT you could start to generalize about. I will admit, however, it's very difficult to listen to some verbalize their vicarious hockey life and how great they ( their kid ) is.
Probably universal in team sports.
