About six months ago Danno emailed me and said he and his dad and brother were coming to Montreal from Ottawa by train to see the Detroit-Montreal game on April 5th.
AND HE SAID HE HAD A TICKET FOR ME!
I’ll be at the game with Danno and his family!
I really only know Danno from this blog, although I met him and his wife in an Ottawa pub a few years ago. He’s come to this site for years, he encourages me, we’ve spoken by phone several times, and he’s been a great friend.
Now this. A ticket to the game, an Original Six matchup, and an important game for both teams.
Just a kind and awesome gesture by Danno to do this. I can’t properly describe what it means to me.
Looking for a big win tonight to make Danno, his dad, and me very happy. (His brother’s a Red Wings fan so I’m hoping for a great game and a loss for him).
Go Habs. Play hard, don’t get hurt, and if Habs equipment manager Pierre Gervais needs help with the sticks, I’ll be in the building to lend a helping hand.
