No joy in Mudville

Official word - the match penalty stands. Hockeyboy is suspended for the full five games required by MN Hockey rules and will have to go before the Disciplinary Commission next week. Because there weren't 5 games this season, this penalty will hold-over into next season.

HB is watching his team play tonight and tomorrow but he cannot sit on the bench, be in the locker room or celebrate on the ice if they win. And if they place, he will not get a trophy.

And all because they can't use common sense to fit the punishment to the crime. Frankly, rule without reason equals anarchy.

I think we're going to start Spring Break early this year. Skiing, anyone?

I know that rules exist for a reason...but so does common sense. And justice only works when it is employed justly. I'm so sorry for HB...he deserved better.
