I too believe that the California Dad is who he says he is, and appreciate his insights into the rankings of Maryland teams.
The put downs between the Hawk and ex-Hawk goalie Dads is pretty sad. In my experience, goalie families (whether teammates or opponents) befriend each other, and encourage their sons to support each other no matter what. I have three sons, one of whom is a goalie, and the strongest bonds we have formed are with other goalies and their families. When goalies have moved on to different teams, the boys and families continue to support each other as friendly opponents. The hawks sure can play, but that exchange is just one more example of their failings on the important stuff.
