What I witnessed at the conclusion of a local league hockey championship in Thornton, Ont. made a mockery of hockey's ultimate act of chivalry. After Thornton Tigers beat the Oak Ridges Kings in the Bantam Championship Finals, some of the victorious Tigers broke the code: They refused to shake hands, instead of uttering positive parting words, they spewed vulgarities: "Loser. Faggot. Retard."
