Bantam (4/11)



  1. I make no judgement as to fault or responsibility regarding officials or security guards. But at a Mars game last night the on ice official threw the entire Mars student section out. I wasn’t at that end of the ice but play stopped until the student section left.
  2. I can only speak for myself and the relationship i have with my son. From the time he played ‘in house’ to now when he plays Varsity, we promised each other the same thing: I won’t ever embarrass him by my conduct in the stands and he won’t ever embarrass me by his conduct on the ice. N=1, but it has worked for us so far. He deserves better than seeing his Dad acting like an ass when he just wants to play.
  3. I try to look at the long game if I can, not always able but I try. My kid got into hockey because he learned to skate early and it just seemed normal to progress to playing. He had the usual little kid dreams of making it in The Chel and skating the cup. He never placed higher than A Major Black but enjoyed every season and made a lot of friends along the way. Second Bantam year he decided he wanted to take hard courses and make good grades so he now only plays for his school. A whole lot of kids of his generation are gonna make some really good coaches in a few years when they finish college and have players of their own. Perhaps that is the long term effect of PPE and all of the other orgs around here. More kids that played the game pretty well and can then pass it along to their own kids. Better coaches, better development, maybe that is the win that is gonna come. My .02 worth Actual mileage may vary
  4. So the problem lies with the Catholic influence over the school and not through Excel or Pens Elite? I read the reports regarding misconduct and saw the public responses leading up to the renaming of the school. Personally I believe the misconduct goes deeper than anyone fears, but that is a discussion for somewhere other than a Hockey Board.
  5. Thanks. I’ll do that search. Anything besides “ North Catholic” need to be put in the search bar or will that give me what I need to see? Thanks again.
  6. I am not understanding the linear correlation between Pens Elite through Excel and then to North Catholic. I do not want to flame anyone and am not challenging. I merely do not see why this would stop someone’s kid from doing anything at North Catholic.
  7. Hasn’t that been part of the discussion from both sides? If the sensitivity or specificity of a test is in question then it is not a far stretch to question the public policies those tests are based upon. As always, merely my .02 worth. Actual mileage may vary.
  8. So Covid enforcement: is there like a special number to call or is it more like the Bat Signal? Asking for a friend.
  9. Really can’t say anything bad about Jim Black, Cody Black, and Bugsy Malone at Baierl when it comes to young hockey player development. All very accomplished in their own right and seem to genuinely love working with the kids on the ice.
  10. Just gotta ask for added clarity. Cult leader; is that the Democrat Party cult leader or the Republican Party cult leader. Asking for a friend again.
  11. Trying to figure out if you’re referring to the cult leaders in the Republican Party or the cult leaders in the Democrat Party. Asking for a friend.
