Mom Mondays: The Healthy Hockey Mom

I’ve begun preparations for a solid fourteen days of game time this holiday season. And by game time, I mean eating and drinking, with a side of eating and drinking some more. I do love to kick back and socialize with family and friends, despite the toll it takes on my body! After Christmas, I’m hitting the gym. I mean it.

And I have just hit the jackpot – call it my personal hat trick! The last and youngest of my three children just got their license. Someone give me a medal.

Cornered Coach: The Peanut Gallery

"Players play; Coaches coach; Parents watch." It's a common catch phrase and a motto used by numerous minor sports organizations. But it's the third part of the equation that usually presents the biggest challenge.

From The Press Box: Season Best

Is there anything better as a kid than waking up on Christmas morning to find new hockey gear under the tree? For me and I’m sure pretty much every young hockey player out there, getting a new stick, socks, skates or pads was one of the best parts of the holiday – even if Santa had a tendency to choose things you had to grow into.

Cornered Coach: The Shot Clock

What's the perfect number of shots for a goalie to face? If you ask me, I say zero. As I've mentioned in this blog before, I was a goaltender in my younger days; not a great one, but good enough to play some junior and college hockey, mostly as a back-up.

Mom Mondays: The Story of Jock and Jill

We’ve all heard the story of Jack and Jill – they were a couple of kids with an unfortunate lack of coordination and balance; probably one of the first references in English literature to concussions too! Poor Jack.

Cornered Coach: The Wall

There was a huge explosion on the other side of the wall. Two of them, in fact. The source of the combustion? Two quick goals by the home team, followed by ear-splitting cheers from the local fan base.

Mom Mondays: Snack Food Philosophy

It’s no secret that a hockey mom spends a great deal of time in her car. Most of the time, it’s just a jaunt to the local rinks and back for practices and league games.

Cornered Coach: Quiet in the Crease

Goalies should be seen and not heard. And that goes for goalie parents, too. Recently, Toronto Maple Leafs netminder Frederik Andersen questioned his team's passion and work ethic. True, after a lightning quick start to the NHL season, the Leafs have come crashing back to earth.

Mom Mondays: Hockey Mom Lucky Charms

Hockey moms are known for a lot of things: driving, organizing, shopping, feeding, soothing, cheering, filling up water bottles, tying skates, learning how not to pass out from the smell of hockey equipment, just to name but a few.

Cornered Coach: Changing Lines

A lot of people love to stick their nose in other people's business. I should know. For over 30 years, that's how I've made my living. As a broadcaster and writer, I actually get paid to shove my proboscis in other folk's affairs.

Mom Mondays: It’s Tournament Time

If you haven’t already, you’ll probably soon be preparing for the first away tournament of the season. The out-of-town hockey tournament is generally all things excessive: too much food, too much driving, too much cheering, too much wine, too much loud music in the car for much too long — and far too little sleep.
