Hockey Fathers and Sons

fatherknowsbest.jpgIf you tuned in to Wednesday night’s Comcast broadcast of the Flyers-Predators tilt you overheard the broadcasters allude to the fathers of Predators’ players seated in Wachovia Center taking in the game. The broadcast camera briefly offered a glimpse of the dads seated in their section. Once a year, viewers learned, the Predators take their fathers on a roadtrip with them. This is something the Carolina Hurricanes did as well a couple of years back, and still do. It also invites, for the thoroughly politically incorrect hockey commentator, a comparison with fathers and sons so connecting in other professional sports . . . or rather, failing to.
My observation, for I delight in offending the sensibilities of others: you see no such connection on roadtrips in the NBA because so few of the players in that league know the identity of their fathers.

    Zing, but in hockey you have to drive to a rink to perfect your skills. In basketball the local hoop is with in walking distance. Therfore, there is not long drive bonding that occurs.
