How far would you go to give your child an advantage in sports? Sure games are emotional, especially championships, but a ‘Hockey Dad‘ from Boston takes things way too far during his daughter’s playoff hockey game. During the third quarter when the score was tied 1-1, Joseph Cordes took a laser pointer and shined it in the eyes of the opposing team’s goalie and players. He was eventually ejected from the game, but that team went on to loose and everyone feels they the distraction cost them the win. As a result , he has been banned from all sports events at the high school and charged with Disturbing the Peace. What do you think about this, was the punishment too harsh? too lenient? What is the craziest thing you have experienced or heard a parent do to give their kids an edge in sports?
