Overzealous hockey parents are always a tad gauche in my opinion (Note to others: Don’t become one). Irate parents who think their little Johnny’s or little Suzie’s are going on to play in the NHL or represent their country at the Olympics have been around forever. Losing their minds at coaches, referees, other players and at other fans these parents are often seen doing many irrational things.
I can recall seeing a few fans during my playing days who are probably pretty happy that their antics weren’t captured with the latest wave in technology (good thing the old Camcorder wasn’t rolling in the Port Dover arena, right Mom?”) I’m pretty certain the gentleman on the following clip feels wishes his craziness happened in another era. “Way To Go Paul!” is going to live on in infamy. Solid pro move Paul!
