First, let me start by saying I am all for woman wanting to show off their bodies in any which way they please. You want to do a half-naked calendar shoot in your kid’s hockey equipment? Go right ahead. But is it a good idea for you and all the moms on your sons hockey team to get together and do it? I’d probably say no. Well, that was the case in the Ukraine when the moms of the kids on a U14 hockey team got together, stripped down, and did a #HockeyMom photo shoot.
Look, hockey moms are the best people on earth. I kiss the ground my mom walks on after years and years of taking my brothers and I to the rink at all times of the day and night. But wow this would suck. Every game you play for the rest of your life you will be getting chirped to no end. If ones of these kids is to make it to the professional level, even in Europe, he won’t go two seconds without hearing about this.
Some of the best times of my life were at hockey tournaments as a kid. You and 15-20 of your best friends get a free vacation to somewhere like Lake Placid or Montreal. When you aren’t on the ice, half the time to spend playing floor hockey and just being kids and the other half you spend messing with other teams and talking trash. You think these 13-year-olds are going to be able to talk any trash at any hockey tournament they go to for the rest of their lives? They are going to get stuffed in a locker if they even try.
Good for these ladies for wanting to be a little risqué and do a sexy photo shoot. I’m all for sexy photo shoots. I’m sure their significant others love it. But their kids? God they must hate it. I’d love to play against this team just to hear the chirps being thrown their way. It’s going to be a tough rest of the season for these guys…
