"Goalies often react quickly to shots with no regard for what might happen to their body because we are trained to stop pucks first and ask questions later."

(A friend of mine linked me to this video today asking me to translate (I’m French Canadian) and I just thought I’d provide a transcript of it. Jonathan Toews and his mom talk about family and what it’s like to raise an athlete. Sorry if that’s been done already…)

Andrée Gilbert: To raise an athlete, whether a hockey player or another sport or activity, it doesn’t happen on its own. Parents need support and help. I talk as a mother of a young hockey player—there are many roles that make sure a team works well: we need coaches, we need managers, we need people who’ll organise fundraisers. It’s very demanding, as parents, to raise a young hockey player, and that’s why we need support, that’s why our children have good experiences playing hockey; it’s when they have a community that supports them—that’s what makes a team work well.

Jonathan Toews: My mom and dad, especially my mom, would discipline us, would be very, very strict about what kind of person we were and everything, about how we worked hard with our hockey, our studies, and all those things. That’s how we were raised as children, my brother and I. So when it was time for me to leave home at 15—I think about it and it’s very, very young, it’s not easy for most children, they’re not ready to leave home; to play hockey at that age. For me, I was very, very serious, very dedicated, and I knew it was something—um—with my maturity level, that I was ready to tackle this challenge. But it’s not always easy for mothers, and especially for me. I really didn’t like when she’d leave the school to return to Winnipeg—when I was at Shattuck St Mary’s in the States—she’d always cry and didn’t want to let me go, and I was like: mom, I’ll be fine, let me do this, I can do it.

Andrée Gilbert: Now, I sometimes say things that he doesn’t agree with, like sometimes I’d say: Well, Jonathan, I think you should shoot the puck more often, then he’ll roll his eyes, all yeah mom, thanks for the tip, thanks for—but yeah, we have a normal life, like all families.

i love how the two most cited love stories of all time are romeo & juliet and titanic and they both involve teenagers who knew each other for less than a week

and Leonardo DiCaprio played the male lead in both them.

Without winning an oscar for either

somehow we always end up here

December 23, 2002: Mario Lemieux scores off a faceoff. It ended up being the game winning goal, with the Penguins winning 3-2.”Radio personality Mark Madden had a running bet with Lemieux about whether he could score in this fashion with Madden announcing he’d give $6,600 to the Mario Lemieux Foundation if he could. This is why as soon as 66 scores, he raises his arms and looks up to the press box, where Madden was sitting to let him know he didn’t forget the bet. Madden recently said that it was definitely worth the money to be saluted instantly by Lemieux.” (x, x)
