Re: MA Unlikely to Play this Fall

Again, I would encourage all of you to call and email your state reps, state senators and the governor as well. Let them know of your displeasure with what you're reading about kids sports and the upcoming school year. I have already done so but we need numbers. The governor is not likely to be moved as he is not up for election for another 2 years, but I'm sure your state reps will be motivated as they are up for election this year. If enough people call and apply pressure they are sure to get motivated and press the governor. Please call/email your elected officials!
I laughed at your naïveté in college and I’m laughing now. “Write your congressman” went out in the 60’s, right after they stopped giving a **** about anything that didn’t benefit them personally.

If Karyn Polito’s son Bobby played hockey it would be allowed now.

Re: MA Unlikely to Play this Fall

still you gotta try or there is ZERO chance of games. I made the call and sent an e-mail. Crickets so far (not unexpected)

Re: MA Unlikely to Play this Fall

Contacting your elected officials is the first. Need to apply pressure in every form. There is safety in numbers. Sitting on your behind and posting snarky remarks will not get your kid on the ice. And, more importantly, it won't get you back to what you really love, which is posting snarky comments about 07's

Hey buddy, Baker is in his second term so he’s term limited and won’t be running again.

But speaking of NH. My kid’s lacrosse tournament in MA just got moved to NH. No big deal for us since it’s a 45 minute drive either way. It’s happening.

"Hey buddy, Baker is in his second term so he’s term limited and won’t be running again."

Is that right?

The actual hockey season isn't going to happen in MA. If your still clinging to that hope after this week's announcements you're foolish.

Re: MA Unlikely to Play this Fall

It amazes me how many people think the season will happen next year.

It amazes me how many people think they won't.

Then again, it amazes me how many people cruise in the fast lane at 65 when there's nobody in front of or next to them.

You probably think I'm crazy as I buzz by you at 90 in my Porsche. Just like you think I'm crazy for knowing my kid is playing competitive hockey next week, next month, and in September.

Re: MA Unlikely to Play this Fall

Truly spoken like a left wing never trumper.. Leagues/Teams will be creative in figuring out expansive skill sessions coupled with front loaded games out in NH and RI until the beginning of the year. Not an optimum solution but better that succumbing to the craziness of Gov Bakers rationale. Try walking around a Home Depot with about 200 people bouncing from aisle to aisle, go to a movie or better yet find your best threads and go do some hardcore protesting side by side with some other never trumpers but kids cant play ice hockey? Protesters were not only allowed but fully encouraged. So fed up with this non sense and the folks who get to decide who gets to do what primarily based on political beliefs and or how much tax revenue can be generated.

Re: MA Unlikely to Play this Fall

OK realize this is a youth board so if little Johnny misses part of a squirt year its really no big deal even though parents will probably think its ruining his development. It's not and it wont matter at all 5 years from now.

The age groups that are getting screwed are the teenagers in the peak of their "draft" years for higher levels (like last year HS/Prep kids) who wont get noticed/scouted and cant turn back the clock. For youth hockey players this is nothing more than a frustrating inconvenience in the big picture.

More ski days this season.
