WTF mate?! How come I never got to do this when I was in school?! Life is so unfair sometimes...

Additionally, I think it's just a little bit amusing that they were promoting staying in school and the importance of education by pulling the students out of school to go watch a hockey practice - not that I object at all (and I'm a certified teacher), but it still seems a little ironic.
