I’m at Shark’s Ice right now, enjoying a fine local microbrew (21st Amendment IPA), and watching tykes skate. There’s a family at the table next to mine, watching the action, and they have a kid maybe 6 years old who is wearing a D SEDIN Canucks t-shirt. He wants to play. Right now.
“Gotta like the attitude,” I said to his dad. “Put me in, coach!”
Dad laughed and agreed.
“His beard is better than Daniel Sedin’s, too,” I didn’t say. Barely.
