An unidentified hockey coach has gone viral on Twitter for a speech about the national anthem.
“We’re not women’s soccer. We’re not the NFL. If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f**k out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena. We don’t have that problem in hockey, we’re better than that but there was no sense in wasting anybody’s time if that sh*t was going to happen,” the unidentified coach told his players in the viral video posted on Twitter on Monday night by Wojciech Pawelczyk.
The comments come after national anthem protests swept across the NFL and more recently Megan Rapinoe refused to properly honor the national anthem for the women’s national soccer team.
This is why hockey coaches are awesome. There’s no fat on the bone with them. They just cut straight to the point, and it’s why I love the sport and the coaches so much.
I can’t get a read on the logo on this guy’s jacket, but I’m guessing he must be a coach at some level of junior hockey.
Otherwise, why would he say the Canadian and American anthem? It’s either that or he’s coaching a low level pro team.
Either way, that guy clearly loves America.
