My child, an average sized 5 year old, plays hockey. Our hockey league sets things up as it should be, keeping kids of the same age together.
We had a tournament with another league. These fools put kids up to 12 years old on teams playing WITH and against 4,5, and 6 year olds. I watched as this behemoth of a girl, probably 10 years old on the ice with kids literally HALF her size.
So of course, she dominated the ice, made goal after goal, and was actually looking pleased with herself. And these morons where actually CHEERING for this!? She wasn't the only one, but I focus on her because she was the one I saw the most of.
First of all, and I know she's a kid, but it looks like she got shot out of an ugly cannon, hit an ugly tree, hit all the ugly branches on the way down, then rolled down a personality sucking hill into a puddle of fat ass. So maybe playing a sport in which she needs to have a helmet on all the time is a blessing to us. Personally I'm not a fan of girls playing hockey, at least my girl. But each family is different, so rock on hockey-ette. But shame on her damn parents. How in the world can they be ok with their kid playing with kids half her size and age, give the girl some credit. That can't be fun for her. She's bullying these kids, these scores can't have any satisfaction for her? Her team mates aren't able to have any fun, they are also little ones. How dumb are their parents for being OK with them playing with that monster of a kid, why didn't they speak up?
Hockey is a dangerous sport when you are playing with kids your own size, let alone playing with kids twice your size. Shameful parents not taking into account my child's safety, their own child's safety too. Idiots.
