Oh, & yeah we’re celebrating and what not, but don’t forget, we’re still the best #bundles
I’m going to tell you a hockey story about a new friend of mine named Courtney. (sports cry ahead)
Watching the game tonight as I always do I’m being loud and wearing my kilt and calling the players by name and chirping hard at the other squad. I’ve got folks high-fiving me and laughing. I got on the big screen a couple times tonight and I’m having a great time with Michael celebrating his birthday. After the first period a lady turns around and leans in to say something to me and I figure she’s going to say something about how loud I am and how she’s heard my voice echo in the arena and I’ll have to apologize since I’ve noticed her lean over to her boyfriend a couple times after I’ve been cheering.

As he went to different booths he found this Captain America button and gave it to her. She always has it with her and it means so much because it’s the last thing her dad gave her before he passed. She says that tonight meant so much to her, not because the Stars played so well, but because hearing someone love the game and be loud and yell about plays and for players by name made her remember her dad. She said it helped her and healed, she said she wanted me to have the button. I sports cried and tried to contain how humbled and grateful I was. I asked if she was sure and she assured me. I promised her that this button would be at e
