We deserve our place in the dictionary and the Hockey Hall of Fame…We are the loudest in the stands, cheering on the coach, the players, and even the referees on occasion.
We come equipped with a jersey or token “hockey mom hoddie,” a personalized sign, coffee cup in hand, Team Canada mittens and a blanket for seat-warming purposes, we ensures vocally that equal ice time and fair play rules are continually observed by all.
Post-game – no matter the score – we are the first to the tunnel, greeting all players with a cheery smile, sliced oranges and individual Gatorade bottles to boot. The ride home to the city is filled with optimism, instruction and reflection, before a quick stop at the local skate shop for an $8 sharpening.
We are all hockey moms, but we are not all cut from the same cloth. No matter which mom you are- one thing is for certain, there’s nothing we won’t do for our hockey loving kids.
