It's January 2013 and the @NHL
lockout is about to end with the players taking a vote to ratify the deal.
The @echlhockey #AlaskaAces
equipment manager, #MikeBurkhead
, reaches out to me, and tells me that Brandon Dubinsky really likes their player kit/toiletry bag, and would I mind making him one in Columbus Blue Jackets colors, and if so, here's the address.
Five years and a couple of months later, I see a post on Twitter from @bluejacketsnhl.
That's the first photo posted. I don't normally look at their tweets/posts because they aren't a client. For some reason yesterday, I did.
The second photo (upper right of tweet) got my attention as it showed the room. Something looked off, so I clicked on the pic and scanned the room. I was curious to see what that one, "different" bag was.
Then my memory kicked in and I remembered about making Dubi that bag! So I looked closer and zoomed in and sure enough, all these years there it is, 369 games plus numerous practices later, where the bag was more than likely opened and closed, it's still in use!
With all that said, I'd like to thank @bdubi17
for putting a smile on our faces! We all had forgotten about that bag until last night and we don't even have a photo of the bag in our archives.
As far as the contest is concerned, we ended up with TWO WINNERS who answered correctly at the same time via Facebook. Chris Rupp and Aaron Holick, I will be reaching out to you shortly to get your details. Your prizes will be sent out next week.
