Some dad in Canada is a bit upset that his son didn’t make MVP on his hockey team according to an article in the Globe and Mail:
A New Brunswick father is suing the provincial amateur hockey association after his 16-year-old son failed to win the league’s most-valuable-player award.
Michael Croteau is seeking $300,000 in psychological and punitive damages from the association. He is also demanding that the MVP trophy be taken from the boy who won it and given to his son, Steven, as well as the league’s playmaker award, which was awarded to a different boy. Croteau also wants Steven to be guaranteed a spot on the New Brunswick Canada Winter Games roster.
“I’m doing this because all the years I played and coached hockey I saw what good it could bring to your life. I’m doing this for my son. He feels very bad. He did his best. . . . I didn’t want to go this far but hopefully it will be an example to others.”
An example to others on how to be a total friggin’ idiot perhaps. Someone slap this moron upside the head with his own hockey stick, would ya?
