Really wish I could be at this game. I'd rather be at this game than our first home playoff game. LOL Oh well, guess I'll have to settle for watching it on CBC, glad to know they are showing it. Sucks for all those Sens/Alfie fans that can't see it, typical CBC Toronto homerism. You can bet that if it was a Sundin-based ceremony, hell even Tucker or Gilmour, they'd be piping it to the whole country.
I remember reading that Alfie is going to wear a different jersey in each period, and that one is going to his family (naturally), one to the HHoF, and one elsewhere (to the team?) Where was the third one going again? I think a nice idea would be for him to wear at least a fourth game jersey, and auction it off. The proceeds would go to Roger's House, or to Alfie's favourite charity. This way, a Sens/Alfie fan would get a game-worn Alfie jersey (that would instantly become my prized possession, especially if it was autographed), and a great charity could get some funding.
This should get the Sens pumped up to win this game. CBC will receive a very angry letter if they don't show the ceremony.
They've confirmed they'll be showing the entirety. BUT if they don't Ill probably make a quick stop to www.ratemypoo.com to get some material for my email. Lol at the few of you that head over to the site curiously...
Hecht is out for the season? That's bad news for Buffalo, he's quietly had a great year.
Oh yeah and HAPPY ALFIE DAY!
Hecht is only out the regular season. He should be back for game one. He's either (A) Resting some bumps and bruises or (B) Rumor that he has a slight fracture in an index finger. Either way he should be back for the playoffs.
Thanks for noticing what a good year he's had. He doesn't get the credit he deserves.
