Behind The Awkwardness: Hockey Mom

Behind The Awkwardness: Hockey Mom - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“This is a photo of my mom, my brother, myself, and my soon to be born younger brother. I’m awkwardly in the hockey equipment on the bottom left. A family friend talked mom into having us all pose for this photo. It went on to win some sort of award in a Newport, RI photo show. It also hung in our house while I was growing up, which made for some awkward moments when friends came over.”

    I think this picture is unreal. Just a family full of beauts. When my hockey career is over and I have a couple kid-os skating around, you can bet that there will be one of these bad boys hanging right next to the trophy case.

  2. cheesehead says:

    i think this is a great photo, it shows a goofy funny family. i bet all of you have worse or more embarrassing photos in your closets. atleast this family can laugh about it.

  3. MAC Daddy says:

    Clearly, someone should’ve been called for high-sticking.

  4. Angie says:

    This is the craziest thing ever!!!!!!! Why would anyone want this photo taken…much less display it!

  5. j_bryon says:

    I’m willing to bet that her bra didn’t appear see-through until the flash went off. That happens very often with tight white articles of clothing.

  6. Lee says:

    What is she wearing around her waist? It looks like children’s snowpants or something .. is it also some piece of hockey gear? Or some maternity skirt type of thing? It has strange flaps at the top like she was peeled open ????

  7. Mikenzie's momma says:

    Funny he says this won an award in newport , RI. Im in the next town over and Hockey really isnt that popular here. Tennis on the other hand…..

  8. FriskyPhysics says:

    It’s an excellent picture…that’s why there is so much discussion regarding it. I am sure that they won for composition. Who has ever thought of composing a picture this way? Think of the message behind it. Very well done.

  9. LuvnLuke says:

    At least the masks are hiding their faces pretty good! What an odd picture.

  10. BuzzsawV says:

    At least the kid is sporting a jersey trumpeting the name of one of the greatest NHL goalies of all time: Cleon Daskalaskis! Oh man, I miss the early eighties.

      Loving the 2′nd picture from the top, so thfirty! I always like diy & under-5$ projects!I ain’t able to watch the canadian Hockey games. Here the people are more fans of Soccer/Football, so the tv stations do not really show a lot of Ice hockey. :(‘was only able to catch the end game of 2011 men’s world chamionship where Finland won. :DP.S.: Happy Victoria Day, I hope you are having a fun time!

  12. devtrev says:

    They want to a hockey game and a pregnancy broke out.

  13. Glenn Strous says:

    This looks like it will be a very exciting race to the Cup. Like always, anything can happen come the finals!

  14. teaandtoast says:

    This woman was obviously not thinking of her children. What the heck!

  15. Lenonidas says:

    This is hilarious and so creative! I bet your mom is smart and witty.

  16. Gab says:

    Lmao, I live there.

    Looks like they had no good contenders that year.

  17. ReginaPhalange says:

    I’ve heard of “barefoot and pregnant” but “shirtless and pregnant”???

    Hockey mom future playes in oven.

  24. Ferrari says:

    Oh my…..!

  25. Boots says:

    Nice to see she left her white socks on. I also like to scar my kids for life in comfort and warm feet.

  26. powerplayer says:

    is this real life?

  27. Laura says:

    Sean–you have my sympathy. I’m speechless. Which doesn’t happen often, trust me. Kudos to your very brave mom for subjecting herself to this…but…wow…

  28. MCRachel says:

    This proves that the hormones brought on by pregnancy DO make you crazy.

  29. Utis says:

    is it just me or does the mom not have a right leg?

  30. Amy says:

    hot flash?

  31. Joey says:

    Methinks there was a deplorable lack of talent at the Newport, RI photo show.

  32. Anna says:

    Oh… so this is why Jason donned a mask and went on a killing spree at Camp Crystal Lake. It all makes sense now….

  33. saintsfan says:

    all i can say is wow.

  34. Imma HotMess says:

    Is it just my eyes messing with me or can you totally see through mom’s white bra?

  35. Hank says:

    Sara Palin -GO HOCKEY MOMS!!

  36. funnygirl says:

    It’s just really wrong on so many levels.

  37. HP McNasty says:

    Looks like someone pulled the goalie on her

  38. Shawn Poe says:

    Is the boy on the right missing his right arm?

  39. Chris says:

    Is it wrong that I’m turned on by Mom’s sexy pregnant belly, sports bra and hockey pants???

  40. Dawn says:

    Has anyone else noticed the shadow of the photographer in the background? Seriously? What kind of award could that win? Step out of the way of the light soure to take the photo!

  41. Lindsay says:

    Good thing they got to wear their hockey masks.

  42. cranky says:

    Sarah Palin’s lesser-known sister. Hockey Mom, indeed.

  43. Teresa says:

    Mom in her sports bra is a bit much even for me to look at. I hope the kids therapy bills aren’t too big. If the kids let this pic sit out as they became teenagers they are very good sports.
