Calgary Gym Teacher Thrown Out Of Jobing.com Arena
Midway through the third period of the Coyotes vs Blackhawks game, a water bottle was thrown onto the ice by a Blackhawks fan upset that his team was losing. The fan was escorted out of the rink by security. It turns out this was a High School Gym teacher from Calgary. It has significance to me because he is my gym teacher. Maybe this is not a big deal, but I found it pretty funny as I too was at the game and saw it myself. Take this for what it is, a funny coincidence, and not as a major story.
I will not name names or give out any information as to where he works, as it would be rude and I don't want to embarrass him further, it's just meant to be a funny and ironic story.
UPDATE: Information in this thread is false, and was given to me falsely.
Wow. What a dumbass. Throwing trash on the ice, and he's supposed to be teaching kids about athletics and sportsmanship?
Unless he's from Vancouver, this is totally unacceptable.
"I had only seen the NHL in black and white. My grandfather bought a colour tv. The Flyers were inexplicably wearing orange uniforms. I fiddled with the colour controls until they were wearing proper red uniforms. For some reason, this adjustment screwed up the colours on the other programs. There was only one station to watch. I thought he had got a defective tv. The technology was in its infancy. It took a long time to figure that one out."
Fair enough, but deep 5 figures isnt anything to complain about either. They actually get paid a decent market rate (38-45) to start. If they can find full time work.
They also have the Pope's job security. They practically have to die to lose their jobs.
Oh I am not saying it is a bad thing. I just feel teachers are undervalued and they should be making more for what they do/have to put up with. I'd love to be a teacher if only to have the time off in the summer.
