Yep. Funny story with that lady and how the "C" came about. Her daughter was in my class and she was bragging that whole week that her mom was going to be sewing a big "W" for winner on the jerseys right on the ice should the Rockets win. That Friday she came in all panicked. Someone had broken into their home and stole her sewing machine and took all the "W" stencils. Kept mumbling about how the team was going to be so disappointed. Anyways, as it turns out she had a crap pile of the letter "C" because the team had chosen to forgo choosing a captain that year. Management jumped all over the idea because not only could they crown everyone as a "champion", but that each of them were also "courageous" and a "competitor". I'll never forget it. Especially when they let her be the first to carry the Cup around the ice. I had tears.
