That's My Boy!

I gave prior warning that an occasional post would be hockey oriented. Well, this one is both hockey and family oriented. Son # 2 took part in a Coach’s Clinic at the Air Canada Centre yesterday.

Picture #1 — my son is standing beside Paul Maurice, the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. How cool is that? (From left to right — Todd Griffin, Josh Nobrega, Paul Maurice and Ted Stewart).

Picture # 2 — Ted in the foreground strutting his stuff on hallowed ground/ice.

Ted is interning with Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment at the ACC and earning two university credits while doing so. What a dream job for a young man with a passion for hockey. (I like to think he inherited his passion and skill from his mother.) No pay other than a transportation stipend but does that matter? Not a whit. Certainly not with such perks as yesterday’s opportunity to “assist” Paul Maurice with the Clinic.

Go, Ted, go!

Great pictures! None of my boys got into hockey at all because we lived in North Carolina when they were young and skating just didn't happen. So now we are back home in Canada and my oldest is into football and my middle boy is all about skiing. My 9 year old is...um...we're still working on getting him off the video games.

And that baby video? Priceless. It still has me giggling.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll be back :-)
