I am brand spanking new to the Causeway Crowd and very excited to be here.

I have had a great admiration and respect for this team over the years, though I’ve been rather quiet about it. I am thrilled to change that and participate here at FanSided.

I wanted to start my first posting on a personal note.

I will admit to having a soft spot in my little sports heart for  a couple defense-men

#55 Johnny Boychuk  &  #21 Andrew  Ference.

A couple of fellers who hail from my home town.

Who wouldn’t love that?  They way this team handled themselves in that phenomenal cosmic power of a run for Lord Stanley’s Cup last season – well what True Blooded Canadian wouldn’t be prouder.

Hockey is a Canadian Past time.

This team has more Canadian Blood skating on the ice than non.

 

What makes them heroes in my eyes are more the choices made off the Ice. I have a young hockey enthusiast in my world who do to her own head injury is not going to be able to play hockey again. Though it is often a struggle, the stories of others give her courage too.

A heroes choice this past week seems to be our Marc Savard.  Though there is no doubt he is missed on the ice, what he does off the ice is nowhere any less remarkable.  #91 recently talked about the suite he donated to the Children’s Hospital Boston.

Focusing on something to give smiles to children facing brain injuries and challenges of the own.

Working to uplift in whatever way he could and giving back in a positive way.

This is why I love this sport.

These are not nameless faces of people who mean nothing and do nothing.

This is our team.

This is our sport.

This is apart of our Heroes.

 

 

This is our Boston Bruins.
