I've been published.
Well, we made the paper. Hope the New Glasgow parents were embarrassed. As well they should be.
The letter to the editor also prompted a reporter to write an article on the subject.
Time will tell if we get that apology or not.
The first step is admitting you have a problem.
Heads will roll, ya sure, we'll see.
This is to acknowledge receipt of your e-mail and to let you know I passed it on to the Co-chair of New Glasgow Minor Hockey, Gilles Legere. It has also been forwarded to Paul Fraser,Communications Director of New Glasgow Minor Hockey.

To the Editor:
I just have to write to express my disappointment and disgust at the conduct of the New Glasgow Bantam B parents at a recent tournament held Trenton this weekend.
I realize that things can get heated when you are routing for your favorite team but booing a 14 year old when he is receiving a medal is a bit beyond classless.
In two different games that Trenton had against New Glasgow, the New Glasgow parents showed poor taste and even poorer sportsmanship when they cheered a certain Trenton player when he got a penalty. Now, that can be chalked up to the heat of the moment during a tournament game,but after the games were over and the children were lined up to receive awards and medals, these parents went above and beyond tasteless.
As this particular boy was called up to receive his award, the New Glasgow parents booed him. I am sorry, but this just rubbed me the wrong way and if it had have been my son, they would have been hearing about this long before this letter was printed. What kind of an example are these people setting for their children? If I were the parent of this child I would demand an apology from the New Glasgow Minor hockey for the conduct of the parents at this tournament.
You know what? Even though it was not my son, I still demand it. Wrong is wrong, and they should be ashamed of themselves. We all signed contracts when our children were registered for hockey and they broke that contract.

F...ing near snow blind.
How do you pronounce that?
The crazy cat sisters.
I told you so.
House or Barn edition?
Fucked up the ass, and still no dinner.
