I was about 10 feet so I ran at him and threw a bodycheck, than dropped my gloves and said "lets go expletive expletive" etc etc, he wasn't wearing gloves therefore did not drop them. Nothing came of it, except his voice cracked and I noticed he had braces
. Overreaction? what should I have done.
I've never been in that kind of situation in a coed league, usually the guys are very apologetic when a girl goes down.
Anyway what would you do in my situation?
FYI I'm 5'7 180, short and stocky, so he was well out of my weight class. But I'd still wreck him
I'm not touching that one.
But I will add that anyone being rough at a coed game needs his ass kicked end of story. You did what I would have.
Some women have told me after skating into each other not to worry about it as they like to play that way. You know women these days have the "We're not girls, we're women" type things. I love women for not being weak nowadays.
I hope to see women in the NHL someday as people who can play and not as a novelty. They are getting better and better and someday it will be common place for rough stuff in the corner with the opposite sex even at an amature coed game.
