Roller hockey coach’s 13-year-old son replaces him for post-game interview

Hey folks, remember the 90s? You know, when skateboarding was all the rage, and extreme sports dominated ESPN? If so, you might remember the wave of a little game called roller hockey.

Well, roller hockey still exists as sort of a cult sport/summertime hobby for ice hockey players. It’s played pretty much around the world, so much so that it has a World Championships. They’re a little more fancy, however, calling it the “Inline Hockey World Championships” and not using the same team names as ESPN’s Pro Beach Hockey.

After Great Britain’s loss to the Czech Republic in the tourney, coach Simon Hehir was unable to do the post-game interview. Fortunately, his 13-year-old son Ethan gladly obliged.

Adorable, and the best part is that you can see he’s clearly well-versed in coach speak already. Finland and Canada will play for the Gold Medal at the Inline Worlds. The United States, who won Gold last year, have settled for Bronze in 2014.
