"I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out" -Johnny Firstgrader

The Buffalo Sabres minor league affiliate, the Portland Pirates, have an annual "School Day" game that is played during day time hours so kids can attend. This year's game had 3600 elementary students in attendance.

Check out what happened-

The example they set was "YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE YOUR TEAMMATES BACK" and "LOYALTY IS SUPREME" and "YOU NEVER RAT ON YOUR FRIENDS" (no wait, that one's from John Gotti). Kids are too soft today and are out for themselves (Americans too for that matter). You protect your teammates and keep the puck out of the net.

This never would have happened if it was the affiliate of a classy team, like...oh, I don't know...the NJ Devils, perhaps?

Actually, I don't see what the big deal is. You take kids to a hockey game, they're going to see fights. Plain & simple.

And those grade school kids were from Mount Ararat? Huh… isn’t that interesting, Noah’s Ark… and children from Mount Ararat landing a top such peaceful surroundings. The hypocrisy of their issue; “complaining that this was inappropriate for young folks?” Well maybe they do have a point. But welcome to the real world of what goes on every day in the sex/violent/sin-laden public school systems across America. And the sad part… this kind of self-destruction is mostly ignored or excused by those in charge of mentoring and teaching these same young folks? Bet ya, if Heritage took our students to a hockey game and such a fight occurred, few parents would complain, for such is life.
