If you have a kid entering or in the game, you better get a handle on the lingo. Jamie provides a great list of common and not-so common words and phrases sure to be uttered by your hockey player at some point during their career. Get ready for “Hey Dad (or Mom), did ya see the beauty dangles then sauce me a pass for a clapper that I put bardown?” As long as your kid’s not a duster, you’re likely to be hearing this and other fancy quips a bit.
Here’s another reason why coaching girls hockey or any other team sport is so worth it. Just look at those smiling and in some cases awkwardly twisted and disturbing faces. This team is just having too much fun given the opportunity to do one “crazy” pose. I don’t recall what the “smile” prompt was that the photographer used, but I’ll guarantee it wasn’t the standard “cheese” that elicited this response. If only all of the obviously overly-respectable coaches coulda played along.
