       Yeah youth hockey is insane. I've encountered some crazy parents. And these kids who literally eat, sleep and breathe hockey. The kids who, when they aren't at the rink (which like someone said is every day), have full setups in their basement. They only play the NHL games on gaming systems.  Some of them are homeschooled because of how hectic the schedule is.

      My kid is good but hell no. Not knocking competition sports as I was a pretty dedicated ballerina and competition gymnast but there are limits. He still has homework every night. He likes playing Minecraft on the XBox. He still likes building with Legos and riding his scooter. We talk about other things besides the next game. 

      Soccer is often spring/summer here and hockey is Sept through April 1. Most kids here do both to stay in shape.

      I coached 3-5 year old soccer, it was GREAT.  Very little about fundamentals and more about sharing the ball and working together than scoring goals. Oh but the 10U's I took on in an emergency? Just as bad as hockey parents. They lost their first 5 games and parents bullied the other coach out. They hated me because I wouldn't cower to their demands and had no hesitation benching their kid for being a brat. But the team nobody thought had a chance ended up winning the tournament championship with me at the wheel.

      Sometimes it's the coach. Sometimes its do or die to win, others (like hockey we have this year) want the kids to learn and improve rather then focus on how many goals they score. We bounced rinks 3 times to get the right balance.

      Yeah but the girls aren't supposed to act excited for sex though are they? I figured they were joyfully available to please their headship but that's it.

      Why do any of them run out? Is this a cultural thing? I've never seen anyone else do this.

      One of my really good friends is from Rome. I really want to show her Jill's lasagne recipe and watch her recoil in horror. After a couple beers she has a standard drunken rant about how the UK doesn't know how to make pizza properly and Italian-Americans act like Italy's equivalent of hillbillies (which, given historical immigration patterns....kinda makes sense).
