Re: Glass watchers

And for the record, in the 12 years the kids have played the game, I have:

Stood alone on the glass watching
Stood on the glass with other family members / other parents
Sat in the stands alone
Sat in the stands with other family members / other parents
Chased my younger son around the rink while the older one played
Chased my older son around the rink while the younger one played
Done the clock
Done the scoresheet
Had a great time watching the games with all 4 of my kid's grandparents
Watched some games with their great grandfather
Gotten old
Watched others get old
Enjoyed every minute of it all no matter where I stood or who I was with and I will miss it when it's gone

So quit yer *****in' about everyone else and enjoy the ride on your own terms

Re: Glass watchers

C'mon, plenty of tools everywhere - at the glass, in the stands, in the locker room area. A whole lot of parents living vicariously through their kids.
Well, yeah, now this is completely true.

The Stands Watchers think they are normal and the Glass Watchers crazy. The Glass Watchers think they are sane and the Stands Watchers obnoxious. Both are right, and both are wrong.

But, I've never been to any rink where you can see the whole ice surface better from the glass than from above. That includes TD Garden. At some rinks the view from the stands is certainly better than others. It's never better at the glass, overall.

What is with all the hockey dads (and moms) who watch games along the glass instead of watching the game from the stands with the rest of the families? Same group that huddles together watching practices to evaluate every drill and performance of the kids. I have generally seen this from mites through peewee minor level. Same guys talking about tryouts 1 month into the season.

Guys......give it a rest. Either your kid is over pressured by you or your kid sucks and is just happy to be there to begin with. Relax and enjoy the long run with them.


It's a much more pleasant experience watching games away from the rest of you pyscho's who think your kid is the next NHL 1st round draftee.

Re: Glass watchers

teams are all different.... our team has several moms that think they should be NHL coaches yet have never played and yell shoot, two hands on the stick and every other useless piece of advice every 5 sec.... I head to the glass or other side of rink to enjoy the game. I try from time to time to join the nonsense for entertainment value but last only a few min before I cant stand it......

Re: Glass watchers

I find it is easier on my back to stand rather than sit in the bleachers.

Re: Glass watchers

Depends on the rink, stands at HT suck, can't see a ton of the play. I love sitting with some of the parents on the team and watching the games, other days I like to stand at ice level and watch games. Who would care really?

Getting away from Yahoos like you who scream down at the kids and the refs. I'm actually enjoying the game and not giving my kid hand signals or having them look up for me every second.
