Not sure where else to post this, so I'll do it here.

Great story:

Hockey helping Medal of Honor winner Romesha

Quote:
"It's an amazing sport to watch. Being with the Minnesota boys, they dialed me into the Wild. Cal Clutterbuck, what a sweet hockey name," said Romesha, 31, who began to see parallels between a hockey team and his platoon. "You can see the direct correlation for teamwork. You have to hold down your sector, your zone, your assignment. Just like hockey."

...

All three of these guys are such heroes and showed such bravery. Not just that day, but to sit a Northern California knucklehead like me down and tune me into a great sport like hockey. I can't put into words how much those guys mean to me," Romesha said. "They were at the ceremony at the White House and the Pentagon. We're going to try to link up and go see a Wild game. We'll have to put a date on the calendar and get everyone together and go have a few beers and beat on the glass."


C'mon Wild front office, we all know you read these boards...step up and invite this hero to do the "Lets Play Hockey" before a game.....
