LOL. Very true.
At first, the poor kid was too scared to tell my wife and I. He thought we'd be very upset.
I think he was pretty relieved when I just gave him a hug and told him that I don't care at all and that we could still have fun playing road hockey and on our backyard rink.

My wife on the other hand, hahaha. She REALLY wants him to stick with it. Hahaha. I never thought it'd see this day coming.

But I refuse to be that dad that forces their kid on the ice. I've seen too many fathers strong-arm their kids and then those kids don't even want to look at a pair of skates when they hit highschool.

My dream was always to have my kids learn the sport well enough so that they could join me in my pick-up games. I hope that can still happen.
Playing with my boys, and then grabbing some pizza and wings afterward would be Heaven to me.
