Phenomenal post. I think many, many dads reading this have been in this position. I to had that "moment" when I gained perspective and realized the lifelong relationship with my son was more important than anything that he could have possibly done wrong at the rink. Tears in a 9 year old's eyes after playing a game and taking a verbal undressing from his own father is tragic. We are all so lucky to be where we are with our kids and should hold on to it.
