I'm not sure why the dboard has to take the summer off. We should continue to post throughout the summer in the spirit of making random crap up and posting opinions based on nothing as if they were facts. I am fine with occasionally drudging up the exact same information or false rumors repeatedly as if we have Alzheimer's. Let's continue the meaningless black hole debates over which league is better, which levels are equal to the inglorious town hockey and which organizations are utter trash. Why can't we keep launching random assaults at strangers and their kids? Who's stopping us from belittling everyone that isn't us? I know that I will certainly continue being better than all of you for the entire summer and into the future indefinitely - I don't see why I should refrain from hiding that message in passive aggressive posts about my kid for an entire season.
The dBoard will slow down but the hardcore will be posting all spring & summer. If you are new to this, the following topics will undoubtedly show up. Which tournament team is best, how did they pick (insert name) team, which teams are just $$$ grabs, which tournaments are real, politics of New England youth hockey, etc. Sorry your kid got cut will still be posted along with "have your kid pick up a lax stick, baseball glove, etc." and 400 posts telling you how to spend your dollars & your time by well meaning know it alls. I'm just looking forward to the 05's getting a few years older because 02-05 group could seriously replace the '96-'98 year parents that used to make the Junior/College boards such an enjoyable read. I'm really looking forward to it.
