Surprise, surprise

As I am anxiously awainting the start of the Caps/Canes game (serious nail biting and antacid popping is taking place) I wanted to share a piece of hockey news that just shocked me. I mean truly really was unblievable........

Quebec Remparts goalie Jonathan Roy was suspended for seven games, and Remparts coach Patrick Roy -- Jonathan's father -- was suspended for five games following Saturday's melee between their team and the Chicoutimi Sagueneens in a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff.
Also, isnt it kind of weird that Jonathan Roy refers to his dad as Patrick?
"Patrick looked at me and told me to calm down," Jonathan Roy said. "I said to myself, 'He doesn't want me to go,' but when the line judge released me, I said to myself ... 'I'm going.'"

Kids! Sometimes they just have no respect.

"I get no respect. No respect at all, I tell ya! Why, the other day I was scolding my kid. I told him 'You're young, you got nothin' upstairs'. He said, 'Oh yeah! Well, you're old. You got nothin' downstairs'." - Rodney Dangerfield

I hate when kids call their parents by their first names.

1) Well, originally Parick Roy demanded to be called by his real name, The Lord God, he relented as this sounded a bit too formal. ; )

I wouldn't be surprised if it's something he's in the habit of because of the fact his dad coaches all the other kids too - maybe P. Roy figured it would be less awkward if everyone, including his son, called him Patrick rather than having everyone else call him coach or Patrick and his son call him Dad
