I love the comment..."Oh, just leave them alone, their just kids having fun!" This is what the problem is with the country. Now one is teaching morality any more.

You see it all of the time. Your at a restaurant and parents are talking and laughing while the kids are climbing the walls and jumping on things, while the parent go on like nothing is happening.

So, as a reasonable adult you try and correct that action in fear that they might step on your food next, the parents look at you like you have just shot their kid in the head.

Normally the response is..."Oh come on, they are just kids having fun and mind your own business, I will raise my kid the way I want them to be raised!" Oh...don't call me asking for bail 10 years from now because you had no clue on how to teach your child what is right and what is wrong.

What happened to some common courtesy for other people?
What happened to opening the car door for your wife or girls friend?
What happened to standing up at the table when a women enters the room?
What happened to disciplining your kids when they are out of control?
What happened to holding open the department store door, to allow other people to walk though before you?

Do you not understand that those things that you do, or don't do, reflex on the family. Or is family not important. If this kid was your child and you were in the stands would you feel?

Would you give your friend next to you a "high five" and then scream..."way to go Johnny, do it again!" Hoping that next time he rides his stick while holding up the other arm like he is getting ready to rope a steer screaming....yee haw!

I can't tell you how many times I have seen players do this to the other teams, where the other team get so pissed off, that they go into over drive and kick the ever loving Sh** out of the dancing team.

When you dance in front of the other team, it like rubbing their nose in it and guess what...9 times out of 10, you have just given the other team the motive to go out there and destroy you. You might as well have apply gasoline to the fire or salt to the wound!

If you are that kind of player that does the little curling dance, then I recommend that you switch jersey's on the bench with the kid you don't like. You might as well have painted a target on your back.

But for me, I just tell my team to let it be. The way you shut up a crowd and take the wing out of the dancing team, is to put the puck in the net!

Head coach
I can assure you, I am courteous off the ice, and usually an all around good guy.

On the ice? Well, I get picked for teams since I can get under other team's skins. If celebrating like that will piss the other team off and make them take penalties, well it will help the team more than hurt it.

That being said, I stick to ice dusting, bow and arrows, and other cellys, don't usually pre-plan celebrations like that.
