    Down the Cape today for a game. We lost 6-1 :sad1: but DS did well he almost got a goal on a breakaway and almost had an assist- so close!
    They tried hard. It was a good team. Day off tomorrow. He has a playdown game Monday night. and his usual practices.

    Any games today??? How did you do?

    You guys are sure committed. Rising at the crack of dawn and late games, driving, driving, driving...I'd be a goner. These are the days many memories are made. Kudos to you all.

    We played two games today - a tie and a loss 3-2. The teams were very evenly matched, and my kids played well. But boy were they tired at the end of the second game!

    I sewed the girls' nameplates on their jerseys, and since I was sewing them on a hanger that held both jerseys, yes, I sewed them together. :rotfl:

    My 9 year old DD lost 3-0 today in her U10 club game(1 was an empty netter). I didn't go, but I get the feeling they were pretty tired. They had 1.5 hour practice this morning for the same team at 7:30. Then my DD went and played a soccer game before the actual hockey game.

    My 10 year old DD had a 2 hour practice for her U12 club team from 7-9. She then went to a playoff soccer game and lost 4-3. She then went and played for her town U12 team and they won ( I think 4-3). She did well.

    We have a 2 town hockey games tomorrow(ds, 9DD), 1 club hockey game(10 DD) and 2 club soccer games tomorrow(both daughters, different teams). Hopefully they get some wins!

    That is really funny! I would totally do that.

    I am so lazy I used to bring them to the cleaners and pay them to sew the nameplates. Now I'm even more lazy, I don't even bother with name plates. And I already own a nameplate for each kid!

    They only have nameplates for teams where their team was sponsored or we had to buy the shirts, so the names were already put on them!

    I'm a french Canadian, so it's a no-brainer here.
    I'm the mom of a 5 years old MAGS player. My son started this year, so it's still new to me. It's a little hard, because DH and I both work opposites weekend, so we end up going to the rink alone with the 3 kids.

    My son is actualy pretty good (well, at least he knows how to skate, that's already better than the majority of the team!) and I think he'll play defense, because he skates very fast and can skate backward (he did a year of figure skating and done gymnastics too).

    He wants to be a goaler, but I don't have the budget for this! So I hope his coaches will want him somewhere else.

    I'm typing this from my hotel room in Ludington, MI as our Bantam House B player sleeps in the other bed. He had a game in Big Rapids today and another one here tomorrow. He started in "learn to play", became a goalie and moved to House, and then played as a Travel goalie for three years. After that he got tired of being chained to a net and moved down to House B where he can rotate in and out of net.

    Our college freshman played House, JV, HS Varsity, and after tiring of all the garbage and less than nice teammates, played Midget House B his last year of HS.

    And lastly, this year we're a billet family for a great kid playing Junior hockey for the local team.

    Yeah we buy our jerseys with the name already on them. But that sounds like something I would totally do lol.

    Well coming from Canada I can see why it's a no brainier. My mother and DH's family is Fr. Canadian as well. They are from Quebec.
    So it must be in our blood too.

    I wish I could multi quote on the iPad haven't figured it out yet.
    Sounds like your boys have had some great memories. We wish DS15 would have still played town hockey when he quit the HS team, but oh we'll it is what it is.
    He is now working toward his adult black belt in karate. He quit karate when he was 11 to play hockey. Quitting was the worst thing he did. He earned his junior black belt right before.

    Well, I figure I'd better check in on this thread!

    My DS19 and DD13 are both goalies. DS played for his high school team but now he is in college and just playing men's league and tournaments. He works at our local rink during the summers and holidays.

    DD13 is not currently playing. She played through peewees but decided it was too much once she started middle school. We don't have a girls team here and those boys start getting pretty big at bantam age! She's not quite old enough to play in the women's league yet. Next year, I think.

    I'm also a hockey wife, my DH is a sports broadcaster and does play-by-play for our state University team, and the company that we own runs several college hockey league websites as well.

    DH plays men's league, and I used to play too but I had to retire after an injury.

    We're all hockey all the time here!:laughing:

    Hockey all the time!! :) That's what it was like for us for the past 4 years when both boys were playing. Now not so much just 4 days a week.
    Hope your DD gets to play hockey again. The league we play in just started a girls league a couple of years ago. They have 3 divisions now. It's really great for the girls!!

    Another hockey mom here....well sort of. My ds15 is out with a bad shoulder right now. He dislocated it while biking at Rays in Cleveland. We go Tuesday to find out when he can get back on the ice. When you skate 6 days a week then nothing its kinda weird. He didn't make varsity this year due to injury so another year of JV we are IF he can get cleared.

    I so understand politics in hockey. That is the reason we pulled our other 2 out while they were young. I can honestly say I will be so glad when my oldest son is done. High stress levels will not be missed.

    It's really to bad. These are supposed to be the fun years of your life- there's enough stress when you're an adult.
    Hope he's cleared by the doctor. I'm sure he feels weird not skating at all after doing it 6x wk.

    Good Luck to all the other hockey players this season :)
