In Texas, This Would Be About Football

Aaa_86 We all know that hockey is a big thing in Canada. So big that a father in British Columbia is suing the local youth hockey association for breach of contract after it refused to allow his three children to register this year. He’s claiming $100,000 in damages though the article doesn't explain the calculation.  Perhaps it's the discounted present value of the reduced chance at a lucrative NHL contract.

The association claims it simply doesn’t have anyone who will volunteer to coach the guy's children, at least so long as they remain his chlidren.
