Dad Mic’s Up His Son During Hockey Practice And OMG It’s Absolutely Hilarious

Sometimes, we look at our kids and wonder how did they get the way they are? We can’t always chase them around all day long, and, we miss out on a lot of their lives when they’re busy doing other things. But, one father decided to mic up his son during hockey to truly get that “hands-on” experience and hear what was happening on the ice.

This is Canadian hockey coach and dad, Jeremy Rupke.

Jeremy’s 4-year-old son Mason is also a hockey-lover and even plays in a local league.

Mason is getting his start in hockey with a local Timbits league where the Rupkes live in Barrie, Ontario.

Jeremy noticed that Mason was often talking to himself during practice and decided to put a microphone on him. The result is a downright hilarious video.

In the video, which now has over 4 million views, Mason gives himself quite a few adorable pep talks.

“I was really impressed with the parts where he was pumping himself up and encouraging himself,” Jeremy told BuzzFeed News.

Like any 4-year-old’s sports practice, there were plenty of ups.
