The week that was

SETTING A FINE EXAMPLE How's this for disturbing behavior: Media outlets from?Fargo reported this past week that adults attending a youth hockey tournament in?West Fargo got into a locker room fight. Yep, at a tournament held for Mites, which are hockey players ages 7 and 8, a set of parents and an opposing team's coach had a dispute that ended with one man with a cut lip and a black eye. The two teams playing were both from Canada. The adults involved were ejected from the building before police arrived, and no one wanted to press any charges. Well, how's that for setting a fine example for the youth of today. Hey, kids, look at your teammate's parents fighting with the other team's coach! Now, let's go out there and play with good sportsmanship. We realize sports are competitive, but the competition is supposed to be among the players, in this case, on the ice, not among the supposed adults in the stands. To say we are disappointed and embarrassed for all those involved would be a gross understatement.
