Welcome To My Blog!

Being a hockey mom just BEGS to be written about so when my daughter strapped on the goalie pads, I picked up the pen. Since then I have been blogging rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny. 

Through the highs, the lows, and the all-consuming hockey stink, us parents need to stick together!

Hockey Addiction

Admitting you have a problem is the first step…so before your family and friends stage an intervention, does any of this sound familiar?
- A TV game qualifies as a “date”
- You spend most of said game wishing your date would shut up and keep his hands to himself
- You are quoting a player on twitter who calls themself biznasty2point0
- There’s a Phoenix Coyote bobblehead on your desk..and you talk to it
- Your kid does the goalie stretch in the dirt at tball because she thinks that’s what “warm up”
meant
- The team sent you a holiday card in a HAND addressed envelope
- There is a “proper” way to bang the glass and you’ve shown others how to do it
- You chant and cheer in your living room…alone
- You are seriously considering naming your next child, boy or girl, Radim or Ilya (wouldn’t my goalie daughter make a beautiful Ilya?)
- One team isn’t enough and you start watching any and all teams (does that make the Coyotes a gateway drug?)
- You are THOROUGHLY convinced that your team didn’t win because you wore the wrong shirt or didn’t get to watch the game (I know this is why we have had a rough start to the season)
- 1/3 of your wardrode has a howling Coyote head on it. Seek extra help if your underwear does. Not that I know anything about that..AHEM

Other symptoms include night sweats, headaches and feelings of anxiety when you haven’t seen a live game in 2 weeks. Users may also experience great bouts of euphoria on a winning streak and depression over a shootout loss. Don’t discontinue use, just take 2 tickets and call me in morning.

Are You a Hockey FOM?
