Huge buttons of your kid.

Huge buttons of your kid.

Every proud hockey Mum in the 80′s and 90′s rocked the huge button of their little guy in his equipment. My mother didn’t, but she’s an immigrant and never understood hockey and would therefore not disgrace the game by wearing one.

That doesn’t mean they’re not awesome though. Nothing cooler than the Mum with 5 sons playing hockey, making her winter jacket collars look like the lapel of a decorated war veteran. Those with the lone skating son would often compensate by simply wearing a larger button. They were like the Flava Flav version of hockey Mums. Who’s your Mommy? Don’t let it die.

  1. HA! So true. My mom had not only a hockey-playing son, but also a dancing/figure-skating daughter. There were buttons for THOSE too!
