The Magic Hockey Helmet


The Magic Hockey Helmet...


Hockey player Miller Donnelly, 9 was fed up. He loved the game of hockey, but every time he stepped on the ice, the yelling began. Not from other players, not from other kids, from parents. "It was getting really out of control" said Miller, now 11, who plays for a peewee AA team in the Copper Cliff Minor Hockey Association in Sudbury, Ont. "I just wish they'd stop yelling and start cheering. Then we could really have a fun game," he said. "It's certainly a really big problem... We're the younger ones and they have to show us some respect." Miller wanted to draw attention to the problem. So, in 2006, he wrote a speech for a class assignment pleading with hockey parents to stop being so negative. It was only intended for his class and a few members of his family, but a YouTube video of Miller giving his speech has recently drawn attention and has now garnered more than 100,000 hits. His dad, Mike Donnelly, said roughly 50 minor hockey associations across Canada and the United States have also posted his son's speech on their websites.
