Famous Hockey Mom Does Not Represent Me!

Apr 1, 2010 by

Something has been bugging me and I have to get it off my chest…so here I go.

It really irks me that the most famous Hockey Mom of our time is American. Come on…Hockey is Canada’s game! And, she’s also wealthy, has people to drive her around, and someone to do her hair and makeup at will. Now some of you may be able to identify with that description (??), but most of you will know that I’m talking about past Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.

Now, I’m sure that Sarah Palin is a lovely woman (You Betcha!), and that she is a thoroughly dedicated hockey mom to her son. However, as a woman with a new reality TV show on TLC and who travels the world while her husband looks after the kids, she really doesn’t represent me. In fact, some might say that I have less in common with her than I do a pit bull, with-or-without lipstick.

Speaking of lipstick…the joke that Palin initiated, “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull….lipstick” was apparently heard around the world, as was pointed out to me by a Hockey Mom In Canada – from Norway (Yes, that’s right, from Norway. I think a Hockey Mom in Canada can be from anywhere if they have the right spirit!). Our Norwegian Hockey Mom in Canada also sent me this Youtube video, made tongue-in-cheek by some American Hockey Moms. These women seem as pleased by the Palin-Hockey Mom reference as I am.

So, hope you enjoy the video, and let me know…maybe Palin DOES represent you as a hockey mom?

And to all Hockey Moms all over the world, HAPPY EASTER!
