In direct contrast to the shameful display that took place in Winnipeg last week.

Quote:
VERNON - A peewee hockey player brought spectators out of their seats last weekend cheering, even crying, not because of his moves in the game, but because he stood against the rest of his own team and showed them something about courage and sportsmanship.

Matthew Marotta, 12, and his Prince George Cougars lost a game at Vernon's Classic tournament on a disputed goal. His teammates followed his coaches angry reaction and headed straight for the dressing room, foregoing the custom of kneeling at their own blue line before shaking hands with opponents. Against his coach's insistence—Marotta alone skated out to the blue line and took a knee.

Hurrah for Marotta - took a 12-year-old kid to show that sportsmanship is not just a word but something to be embraced. Great story.

Good kid. With a solid grounding in fair play, decency, and honesty he's got no chance whatsoever at a career in politics.

I hope that the others don't push him around for that. Bullies really don't like being shown up.
