      If your GPS in your car has all the local hockey rinks stored in it so you have an easier time navigating between rinks for back to back games...you might be a hockey parent.

      If your GPS also has all the local hockey shops in case your child suddenly outgrows, forgets, breaks some gear right before a game....you might be a hockey parent.

      If you help your child memorize cities on a map best using silly hockey sentences...you might be a hockey parent.


      If you are reading this thread right now instead of taking care of your messed up house or completing a project at work....you might be a hockey parent.
