“My hockey mom can beat up your soccer mom”

"My hockey mom can beat up your soccer mom” is a jocular line that has been printed on many gift items, such as bumper stickers and T-shirts. The bumper sticker has been cited in print since at least 1999.

“My hockey mom can beat up your soccer mom” became popular after self-professed hockey mom Alaska Governor Sarah Palin became the Republican party’s nominee for vice president in the 2008 election.

MYROW: Or sales, Durham acknowledges. Now you might think a California company caters to liberals, but Durham and Maniatis say their customer base skews conservative, female, and old enough to buy kiddy shirts that read, “My Hockey Mom Can Beat Up Your Soccer Mom.” That’s one of the tamer items.
