No Wonder Hockey Moms are compared to Bull Dogs

Brandon plays hockey for two teams. Travel team, Valley Forge Colonials and middle school, Daniel Boone Blazers. Last night Brandon had a middle school hockey game. His team won 4-1! Yeah!
I really was enjoying the game, routing for our boys and sitting next to other DB moms (on the left of me). Anyone who goes to the games know that I am loud, I shout out positive things and clap alot! I really do not like people who complain or verbally knock other players down.
Having said that: On the other side of me were fans routing for the other team. This one particular lady had negative comments to say against the refs and our players the entire game. I bit my tongue and didn't say anything, although it was annoying.
Towards the end of the game a play had happened at the net Bradon was defending. It looked like an opposing team player had hit him on the back of the head and fell on top of him. It was a cheap shot and I had said (most likely too loudly) "Are you going to call that Ref?" This lady I told you about turned around and had a nasty look on her face and said "He fell on top of him!" (No duh!)
Well I had enough of her and said angrily "You have been saying things this entire game and I didn't say one word to you! Not one word!" Well she didn't know WHAT to say! What I wanted to say was "Don't get snippy with me! Just turn around and shut up!" But I didn't. I think I was tactful and got my point across without being rude. Afterwards, my heart was pounding, I was so angry with this woman. I felt like I just had road rage or something! Jeez!
My husband stands at the boards with all the other hockey dads. After he (ahem) heard me, my wonderful husband came and stood between me and this woman.
Good Man!

7 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. Good for you! But remind me not to piss you off! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. Sarah Palin would have shot her (hehehe)

    PS thank you for your kind words about my mom. She has a very long road ahead.. xoxo

  3. Kathy, that's what my friend, Heather says about me too! haha!
    Ina, I think Sarah would have shot her too! haha

  4. Hee hee... your husband just didn't want you getting into a fight ;) That's supposed to be just for the players! I'm with you on the irritation factor for people who make the game "bigger" than it should be and are negative. I just want the kids to have fun!

  5. Michelle, hee hee... yes... my husband knows me well!

  6. Don't you love hockey it always seems to bring the best out in people!! It does get better the older they get. I remember when my boys were mites and peewees, oh man some of the comments were brutal! Speaking of Sarah Palin she is at Mall of America today. I would love to see her at a hockey game and hear some of her comments. Is Brandon in a Christmas tournament?

  7. Hi Judy! Yep, Brandon is still a Peewee. Next year he will be a Bantam. We are off for the Christmtas holiday. No tournament! I am glad, but not glad. If you know what I mean. How about your boys?
