    The kids I’ve helped rear didn’t have to wait till the teens to become obnoxious. Actually, some of them mellowed out then.

    I would think that helping to get those skates on would be a pain. I’d be thankful too.

    I have a hockey-loving relative who lived in Leduc, Alberta, Canada who says that the divisions in Leduc Minor Hockey Association for kids are: Initiation, Tom Thumb, Novice, Atom, Pee Wee, Midget and, oh, yes, Female.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    “Boys really can smell terrible. A girls’ locker room might have its ambient whiff, but a room full of young male hockey players can be downright asphyxiating. When it was decided that moms were no longer required for skate tie-ups and supportive hugs, women rejoiced all over town. The news made rink-side hot dogs and all-day coffee taste fine. It was, let me put it this way, “A breath of fresh air!” "

    Last Sunday, the University of North Dakota (Fighting Sioux) Women’s Hockey Team beat the University of Minnesota (Gophers) Women’s Hockey Team 3-2, ending the 62-game winning streak.

    The streak began February 18, 2012, the first of 10 times the Gophers beat the Fighting Sioux during the streak.

    12 of the 27 Fighting Sioux are from MN, 11 are international players (5 from Canada), with 2 from ND, 1 from IN, and 1 from MI.

    14 of the 21 Gophers are from MN, with 4 international players (all from Canada), 1 from IL, 1 from MI, and 1 from OK; so it was more a case of the Fighting Sioux from MN beating the Gophers from MN, than ND beating MN.

    The night before the Gophers won 6-1; they’re still ranked #1.

    In the Lynn’s notes there was a thing about forgoing the supportive hugs. There are mothers and then there are mothers. There are the mothers that need to give the supportive hugs to their sons. These mothers will give the supportive hugs whether their boys want hugs or not. And, believe it or not, some of these women are sometimes also not quite so repulsed by male smells or the smell of a locker room. Hey, I don’t know what it’s all about, but that’s the way it is. Maybe they like boys… Maybe it isn’t a bad thing to like boys… Well, if it’s a grown man that likes boys, that’s not so good of course.
    And then there are the mothers who are more than anxious to have their sons stand on their own, or drown. Either way is just fine with them. For these women, any kind of an odor their sons, or any male emits, is a huge problem for them. Stuff like this should be studied and reported on so straights don’t end up marrying closet cases.

    Why are some women so anxious to have kids when there is a 50% shot they will get a gender they hate? I think they just want to be “complete women.” To them it’s only a step towards being a woman. I also think they are confident they can quickly get rid of the boy they don’t want.
