Sweet hockey dreams
We know the sting of defeat and the agony of the bench, that only a mom or dad can feel. There are tribes in New Zealand that inflict pain on their victims in more subtle ways than the game of hockey on hockey parents. But the hockey mom and dad endures and pays the price as long as the ice is available. Somehow our children who cuddle their hockey sticks and dream of chasing the puck in the night make it all worthwhile.
