no one has, but jeff hates hockey... so it doesn't surprise him.

the only thing jeff hates more than hockey is the thought that he someday won't have an audience to hear about how much he hates hockey.

Pretty much. Between the crazy parents at these games, the crazy coaches and the goon mentality in hockey (yes even 10yr olds).....sorry, but no it doesn't exactly shock me.

idiotic? for sure. it's certainly the wrong environment and reasoning to introduce a kid to alcohol, but at the same time, i'm not shocked and there's really no harm that can come from children drinking a small amount of beer. tonnes of little european kids drink wine all the time.

you mean underage drinking only done in Canada? Think again most places in Europe you have to be tall enough to see over the bar to order a drink.

My parents had beer in the fridge and booze in the cupboard when I was growing up. We were told we could drink whenever we wanted to. And we did have a beer now and then. And I liked crown royal and orange juice occasionally.

The three of us brothers grew up as VERY casual drinkers. I'll go months without a drink of any kind and my brothers are the same.

Our parents were very light drinkers as well.

I guess my point is, that if you make drinking some great taboo, people will want to do it to be either rebellious or because "it must be good...my parents wont let me."

This didnt extend to friends and visitors that were underage. And this is where the elders went wrong. If they want their kids to be casual about drinking, fine. But dont make that decision for the other parents.

Well said. My parents were the same way. Also, when I was in High School I saw myself just sipping a couple beers while some of my friends were rolling down the creek drunk as pigs.

I have to agree with Raptorman on the taboo thing. When I lived in Philippines, there really wasn't any age requirement to buy alcohol. Dads would send their kids to the corner store to pick up some gin for them all the time. What I observed there is that minors don't try to get wasted, shitfaced and drop-dead drunk every single time they touch a beer like in Canada because they've had access to it their whole lives. Of course there are exceptions to this, but that is what I observed.
