That was well done by that young kid.


I was a bit afraid that it was going to be the speech that Coach Brooks made before the game against Finland that clinched the Gold Medal.

Herb Brooks said to his players before the last game of the Medal Round, "If you lose this game, you will take it to your ****ing grave." He walked away, stopped, turned and repeated, "Your ****ing grave."

Does that kids voice remind anyone else of the old mystic lady in Poltergeist?

I find this to be quite offensive. First of all as a college student that is about to get a degree in special education, I will tell you right now, you have no clue what Aspergers even is. To label an 8 year old who beautifully imitated such a long speech with that type of fluency, while making eye contact with the camera almost the entire time, I really see no indicator here of Aspergers or any other Autism disorder. Next please choose your words carefully, because your post was very insensitive even if it was just a joke.

Mr. Almost B.A. (by the way, next time you might want to hold back on announcing your very flimsy credentials) please stop being so thin-skinned. I never intended to offend anyone, not in the least a four year old who cannot read. However, watching a movie 150 times is certainly a very repetitive behavior and memorizing an entire speech is not quite so normal for a four year old.

first, that was a stupid thing to say

second, I teach children with aspergers and nothing in the kids countenance or affect suggests this

third, were he even to have aspergers, the point of the video was the speech,.. not "guess what DSM-IV condition I have"....

that truly was a stupid thing to say

Sometimes, its better just to suck it up and apologize. Trying to justify yourself only makes you come off like a bigger tool...
