For Better or For Worse (3/3/11)

Overzealous hockey dads are something of cliché, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be rendered in potent, expressive ways. Check out panel three of this strip for a prime example of an angry, foaming-at-the-mouth parent whose sole desire in life is to see his son’s hockey team outscore its opponents. The narrowed eyes, the gaping mouth, the elongated fingers: they add up to a picture of grotesque, unadulterated rage. If my kids ever play hockey (or, more likely, soccer), they’ll be taught to respect their opponents, if not by their coaches and teammates, then at least by me.
