Shauna offered to drive us to JJ's the out-of-town hockey game. I demurred. It was probably a good decision, for this ↓ is what she later messaged (in blue).
Well we just had the worst game of the season. 5-1 loss.
JJ got an assist on an unallowed [sic] goal. He actually had a good game. All his passes were on point.
The other team had so many penalties and some of them for bodychecking. It was quite something.
At this point I made a comment that this roughness is the kind of thing that leads many boys to quit hockey at around this age. It's too bad. This is supposed to be a non-contact league.
Anyway. Not a great game. Our boys were just not On. And their coach was chirping at Pierre in the lobby. Draaaaaamma.
This time, my comment was that "Some boys never grow up." I don't like chirping, even in the big leagues, but for a coach to carry on like this over a minor league boys game is really too much. These boys are not playing elite level, and this guy is no hotshot coach.
I expect there will soon be a home game, and if all goes well I shall take my camera, for there won't be too many more opportunities remaining this year.
