One of the benefits of being a city kid is that it is not beyond the realm of possibility that you may one day play in the big leagues. Well, on the big league’s turf, anyway, which is what happened for my middlest son this weekend. His house league team sold the most tickets to a Toronto Marlies Game, and their reward was to play their house league game on professional ice at the Ricoh Coliseum. With his dad on the coaching bench, his mother in the front row, and his brothers watching and cheering his every play, our star player had one of his best games ever. See that Goal #2? That was his, along with three assists to help his team to a 5-3 win. A beauty of a game that not only made me a proud mother but a proud city-dweller, too.
That is awesome! Congrats to you both!
