Re: Period Changes

Are you a period changer?

Do you take the 200 ft walk from goal line to goal line between periods to watch Johnny shoot, score and generally miss the net?
How many times do you high five the period changer next to you when your kid scores?
Do you realize the other parents and coaches are laughing at you?

Enjoy the ride, it ends at HS....oh wait of course Johnny will be in juniors and not playing HS hockey, Continue your 200 ft walks while your team mocks you.
Sorry your kid can\\\\\\\'t score and you need to sit at center ice for a better view of the bench( where your kid hangs out). I have one in Prep School and one 07, enjoy the times you can watch junior up close from the glass. It ends very quickly, now that my oldest is away at school we very rarely get to watch him play.

Sure you do first timer! Gotta tell co-workers how many times Jimmy had a shot on net. Do your team a favor and stay in one end and cheer on your goalie for the second period......I know your type will start out in the off Z. :) :)

I am a proud period changer! The stands are for yahoos with cow bells, referee yellers and parents who are constantly yelling "SKATE!". No thanks. It's nice and quite down by the ice where I can enjoy watching the team play and stay away from people who never played the game.

If that were honestly true, center ice glass or corner stands would be a better option to see the entire game. Don't lie to yourself or the Dboard and admit you are obsessed with how your B does compared to his teammates. Bet your ears perk up when you hear his coach call him off. Let me guess, 1st or 2nd year squirt parent...maybe 1st year PW, am I right?

Spot on. This guy sounds like my wife justifying a negative behavior based on negative behavior of others.

When you go to a Bruins game, do you get to decide where to watch from based on the behavior of the idiots around you?

But, Glass Watching is very different from Period Changing.

I, personally, want to see the game. Sometimes I don't even notice that my kid has started a shift right away.

Re: Period Changes

Not a period changer but I love watching along the glass. 1) I avoid the constant coaching from the stands to either "skate" or "shoot it"... 2) I like to watch the play progress either up the ice or back (I am an endzone watcher as well) 3) My kid plays D so I like to see his work in front of the net or in the corners. 4) on the off chance he looks up going to a face off or after a goal against it's nice to give him a wink, nod or a clap.

It goes by very fast, if you have a chance to share a moment with your kid through a smile or something else it's nice to do. At some point, when they get older and you watch from the stands, you'll miss being able to watch little bender grow as a person and an athlete through the glass.

You also avoid all the mom talk - by far they are the worst when it comes to their kid and his/her ability. 9 times out of 10 they are the ones yelling to "shoot it"

Re: Period Changes

I discreetly flip my son the bird every so often. Usually when he is struggling or in the midst of a tough game against a good opponent. Snaps him out of his funk, puts a smile on his face and re-energizes him. :sunglasses:

Your "moment" is the justification? What about the hour you spend in the car on the way to/from the game? Seems like ample opportunity for "moments."

Let me guess. You spent THAT time pre-game telling him everything he should do better this time, and everything he did wrong post-game.

Re: Period Changes

Sounds like most people on this board hate everything about their kids time in youth hockey. Post was probably a failed attempt at humor to begin with. Get a grip.

Nothing wrong with OP. Guy nailed it. Watching the dads walk from corner glass to corner glass between periods is amusing as hell.

The fact this guy agrees with a Wizard tells all you need to know about who is right in this debate.

Keep me away from Wizards and dbags! I'm staying by the glass where I can ignore them and watch the game in peace.

Whats the profile of the period changers / glass heavy breathers? Any opinion..non athletic living through child or former player / athlete?

Re: Period Changes

It's all about just getting the best view of play. I will first try the stands if the viewing area is high enough and good. I will stand by glass if stands suck and will switch ends after each period. If you have an issue with people switching ends to get a better view of the offensive play which is more exciting, then you have some serious deeper issues.

So, what you are saying is that someone that understand that the flow of play through all three zones is what makes hockey great has "serious deeper issues?"

You are a fan boy. Even given your shallowness that only the offensive play is exciting, why would you need to switch ends? You're still in an offensive end.

Ohhhh, what you REALLY mean is, only the end your little Forward plays in is exciting. Everyone else should just go home.

I'll leave you with two words that your little cherry picker has probably never heard.

Back. check.

Re: Period Changes

02 Top Gun “EHF Teir1” dads were the masters of the 200 foot walk. All 9 forward’s dads seemed to move in unison from squirts thru u14. High fives all around when the rare goal was scored. They seemed to be confused and unorganized at NESC games as certain rink’s designs made the walk more difficult to navigate.
