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. Now I blog rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny.

Through the highs, the lows and the all consuming stink, follow me on my journey to get through each season. Us hockey parents have to stick together!

When Coaches Go Poaching

It's happened before and it will happen again. Poaching. No, not the kind with a hunter, a gun and no license but one where a coach from another team in your association nabs a player from you.  They offer the player a chance to move up a level, get challenged, expand his skills..etc etc.

I just call it player poaching. And it pisses me off.

Yes, I know it's selfish but what about us? OUR team? And more importantly what about my sanity? You really have to take the kid whose parents I really get along with? That hardly seems fair.

And yes I am pouting.

But I will smile, say congrats, view a game whenever I can and of course stay in touch with the parents. I also know this gives one of our kids more playing time and that is good. So I will eventually be gracious about this. Why? Because that's just the cool hockey mom I am.

For now though? I'm just gonna be grumpy.

Good luck Nick, we love you!
