NHL Bound?

My brother just called from the rink...it's "playoff" time for my nephew and Dave ("Dad") gave me the game rundown...Brandon's team was losing 3-0. Then Brandon did his thing (I'll explain later) and scored a hat trick to tie things up. Goals were interchanged back and forth (3 more for Brandon) and the game was tied at 6-6 with a couple of minutes to go. That's when Brandon sealed the deal for the win. Seven goals scored for his team...every one of them by Brandon (it's not the first time).

Now, this is starting to become a bit of a story here...this is the "norm" in this division. Brandon scores a whole whack of goals and there's noone they can put on him to stop him. So, they moved him up a division, to see what would happen. More of the same...he scored the OT game winner to prove his case.

I'm more than proud of my nephew...he's battled adversity in life and is a superstar in all aspects. He adores Lindsay and they are tight. We're going to his next game...3:45 today. And I expect we'll be doing a lot of cheering (a warm up for the Canucks game?).

To see his greatness, go here and then here . (I hate making comparisons/keeping stats at this age. But these are undeniable).That's Brandon, middle row, second from the left (with the red undershirt).

While we're at it, let's throw in a pic of Chelsea, my cousin's girl, who does the anthems at local games. It's in our blood, what can I say?

He can be NHL stuff when he gets the Gordie Howe hat trick a goal, an assist, and a fight. Just kidding, good for him.
A friend of a friend just signed with the Blackhawks, horrible team, but he gets to room with Marty LaPointe.

I think he's done that. He's hilarious...when they moved him up they put a "goon" on him and they had a fight. And Brandon held his own for sure. After the goon took a run at him, Brandon kept going back at him. He's fearless.

Very cool, having a roomie like that.

Hey Junky we thought we lost you there for awhile. Deb and I were commenting elsewhere for a bit but we have decided we'll all stay here.

Just so you know we're both doing a 3-1 Canuck dance right now. Too bad you can't see. We're really good and obnoxious all at the same time.

Phew! That was close.

9:17 PM  
Blogger Deb said...

anyhow, we have to win because Minnesota won and went ahead of us. So you should let us win based on that alone. But, actually, we'll just win fair and square.
