Nosebleeds – A disgruntled high school hockey goalie found a pretty unique way to get back at his coaches on Tuesday night – by scoring on his own net, flipping off his coaches before giving a salute and exiting the ice. The above video comes via a Minnesota high school hockey game between Farmington Senior High School and Chaska High School, according to tweets from Follow The Puck, who seem to have a pretty good understanding of the backstory to the meltdown. According to FTP, the goalie in the video is (or, more likely at this point, was) a senior netminder for Farmington, but had been acting as a backup to a sophomore goalie on the team. The coaches put the elder goalie in net for the school’s Senior Night, opening the door for him to display his dissatisfaction with his role on the team. With Farmington leading 2-1 with three minutes left in the game, the goalie played a loose puck behind his own net and calmly slid it in for an own goal, tying the game. He then started to skate off the ice, flipped off his coaches, gave them a salute, and exited the rink. Then, Chaska went on to win the game 3-2.
So this is going viral right now. This goalie scoring on his own net and then flipping off his coaches and the crowd before leaving the rink. I’m not sure what his buddies were cheering about? Do they think this was badass? A power move? No fucking way. This was a big time dickhead move. I mean the only way this is even remotely acceptable is if all the other seniors were in on it and wanted him to do it. But you got to assume all the other kids on the team actually wanted to win right? Just sums up everything that is wrong with kids today. They think it’s all about them all the time. Hey guess what? Sometimes life ain’t fair. Sometimes you don’t get the playing time you think you deserve. Sometimes somebody else is better than you. Learning how to deal with it is part of life. That’s what being a man is all about. Unfortunately kids never learn that nowadays because they are taught from the second they are born that they are the best at everything and are never wrong and nobody is better than them at anything. And the best part about this is I bet if the coaches yelled at him for it a parent would probably anonymously complain and get the coach fired.
