Some great sports stories!

Check this out!  This is tre’ cute.

This video footage is before last nights game in Washington as the Capitals get ready to face the Columbus Blue Jackets in the First Round of the NHL Playoffs.

Check out how forlorn this young Capitals fans is when Brett Connolly gives a puck to the boy (maybe her brother?) who is beside her.

Then look at how happy she gets when Connolly doesn’t forget her.  Her reaction is priceless.

Like I said, lots of great sports these days; and as a result, lots of great stories from sports fans too.

How about the Stanley Cup ring that Chris Hayes, from Chapeau, received 46 years later just last week.

That ring arrived at his door compliments of Cam Neely and the Boston Bruins.

Chris played very briefly in the famous Bobby Orr era Bruins, when they won the Cup in 72.

Hayes is a retired banker and 71 years of age.

His stats; one game in that playoff run on a very deep Bruins team.  He had no points, no shots on net, but served a 2 minute bench minor.

Someone brought it to the teams attention that he was never honoured for his part, even as brief as it was.

Now 46 years later, the Bruins have taken care of him and he has his ring.

These things are worth 10-15 grand usually!  Nice

And speaking of rings;

Another great local story about a Championship ring; local Ottawa businessman Walter Pamic bought an 87 Grey Cup ring at an auction several years ago.

It turns out the ring belonged to former Edmonton Eskimo Running Back, Milson Jones, who’s fallen on hard times recently.

Pamic caught wind of the story and who originally owned the ring, and then Walter took it upon himself to return it to Milson’s family, gratis!

He sought them out on his own accord, met with them and gave back the ring when he met Milson’s son in Edmonton.

And this one is worth around 10-15 grand also.

Nicely done.

So some very nice stories, and some very good people to talk about today.
