I'm not a SMH parent, but I do agree with superstar, that this blog is pretty much SMH folks. I realize that I'm new to this site, but I've reread a few pages back and I just have to shake my head. There can't be that many people gloating about a private school playing in a public school league! Come on,get a sense of reality people, its like a CLUB team playing in a town youth league. I admit I'd rather play a game or two vs. SMH during the year, it only helps build a little intensity. But to hear people brag over and over how great this team is, I gotta laugh, of course they are the best, of course they have depth look at their choices. Teams like Hingham, Arlington, Lexington and A/B have depth but for only a few years if they are lucky, then it might be another TOWN team that is lucky enough to have depth. I bet in a year or so, AC will be a strong MAGNET for OUTSIDE hockey players, do you understand the word magnet, this is a foreign word to the public 'cause they get what they get "intown" only. Thats reality, private has a better chance of becoming a power house then public, so stop your freaking gloating. Someone said it earlier, renaming this blog, instead of "EMASS Girls Hockey 2009-2010", maybe something like "let me know how good SMH is, so my head will swell" or "don't knock SMH or I'll blog you to death"! Get a life, folks!

I learned last year that stating the obvious fact that SMH has a built-in advantage over almost all the teams it plays is taken by SMH fans as a malicious attack on their daughters' characters and callous insensitivity to their feelings.
The notion that the girls on town teams may have bad feelings about never having any real chance to win the title for the last 2 years (and counting) never bothers them.
My daughter told me last year told me that she wouldn't want to play on SMH because they never had any real opposition. I mentioned that here and was told by some SMH parent that either I was lying or that my daughter was a loser because she didn't want to win.
I think the SMH people protest too much.
