WHY NOT SUE FOR THE GOALIE AWARD TOO?
A shining example of how frivolous lawsuits aren't just a U.S. phenomenon. A typically overbearing hockey dad in Canada is suing the kid's hockey league his son played in because they didn't pick his kid as league MVP. Apparently, his contention is that since his son was the league's leading scorer, that was enough to guarantee the MVP award for his boy. I guess no one's ever explained to this doofus that the leading scorer is not automatically anointed MVP.

Poor sonny boy was so distraught over not winning the personal acolade that he now wants to quit the game altogether. Gee, could it be that the voters didn't appreciate being browbeaten by out-of-control hockey dads, and that influenced their votes? The whole thing is idiotic.
