Willie O'Ree Night Cancelled

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced today that the Willie O'Ree Night activities originally scheduled for Wednesday, February 27 when the Blue Jackets host the San Jose Sharks have been cancelled as Mr. O'Ree is unable to participate due to illness.

That's a shame - I was looking forward to that.

Get better, Mr. O'Ree.

Such a bummer. I was looking forward to Wednesday being a really fun night overall.

Yeah. I've had tickets to this game for a long time and I was looking forward to the ceremony. Too bad. We get to see Jody again, though.

Willie's a great man, amazing how he played in the NHL being blind in one eye, along with alot of people not wanting him there, I was going to do the GDT with some good Willie O'ree stuff I had

Fortunately I caught Willie O'Ree night in Detroit when we played them a couple of weeks ago. I would hoping Willie would inspire us to another 5-1 victory!

How about a Jody Shelley appreciation night as a replacement.....

If...IF...we are up 4-1 or 5-1 with only a couple of minutes left we have Pazzy let one in from Jody, the place would go crazy.
