Pacioretty update

Hi all. I came across this little piece with Max Pacioretty today. Not much to it, but thought I'd share it anyhow.

It is illegal to dislike Lacrosse whilst growing up in Connecticut.

Really? I suppose you think that we all drive BMWs and wear sweaters tied carefully around our necks, as well.

I'm sure that you would appreciate it if someone were to post some idiotic stereotypes about people from Montreal.

They wear too much cologne and eat too much smoked meat.

True story.

I hope I don't get excommunicated for my crimes against humanity.

I'd be so upset. It's truly upsetting stuff.

Again, I'm sorry. Please forgive me for my harsh words.

Interesting little read. What I got out of the article is that it really showed the difference in how serious athletics is taken in the US compared to Canada.

Max Pacioretty's idol was the captain of his local High School team. How many people here can name their High School team? Had ever been to a game as a youth and didn't even attend the school, let alone know who the captain was when you were a kid?

If you asked most young Canadians who their favourite hockey player was it would be an NHL'er. Maybe a CHL player, but that's even puhsing it.

Nothing wrong with admiring a H.S. player, I just thought it was very different.

I used to put the ball on the ground and handle it like a puck. It was the only way I could be effective, I was horrible at it.

No, that's just Max being Max. Most kids in the US idolize someone playing in the NFL, MLB, NBA, or (to a lesser extent) NHL. Most people in Connecticut have never played, or watched, lacrosse.
