The other day I went around the locker room and asked players what they were thankful for. All of them mentioned their health and their family. A few mentioned hockey.
Me, I’m thankful for a beautiful wife, two awe-inspiring boys, and the fact that I’m healthy enough to still play the game I love. And I’m thankful for this growing and vibrant community of readers who make this blog so rewarding, and who always keep me on my toes (and as Tom Renney likes to say, you’d rather be on your toes than your heels).
Very often at games and in e-mails people reach out me to thank me for all my hard work. It’s a nice thing to say, but it’s also completely unnecessary.
For one, this blog is part of a job that I’m lucky to have. And two, I can assure you I get more out of it than any of you.
