    No worries, BB was just busting my balls because backyard-hockey.com is my website and I didn't disclose that in my original post.

    Neat story. 

    The only issue I have with it is the fact that it starts off by touting the handing of a souvenir stick to a young fan as something unusual.  It has become quite commonplace in the NHL.  In most arenas, the home team players who make that game's "three stars" come out with a wooden souvenir stick and hand or toss it to a fan.  Usually the stick is given to a child. 

    In reality, the passing of the stick to a fan is good PR.  Most, if not all NHL teams have recognized that fact, and have incorporated it into the end-of-game ceremonies.  That said, I am sure that Savvy loves kids, and was happy to pass the stick to the lucky youngster.  It just seems to me that a less scripted moment might have made a better starting point for the story. 

    Again, I liked the story, and don't want to come off as nitpicky.  Just sharing a little constructive criticism.

    JPinNH,

    Nice story, hopefully your son will remember it forever the way I remember meeting Bobby Orr at Eddie Johnson's farewell party in 1973. I was 12 and my father paid $50.00 ticket to go to the party. After everyone eat they let me go to the head table and meet the team. I was around the team for a while and they finally sent me back to my table. Fast forward 18 years later in the financial district of Boston with a suit & tie on and I meet Bobby again. I tell him about that story and before I finish he say's you weren't the young boy were you. So you see we all have encounters that last for life. I hope you enjoyed mine as much as I enjoyed yours.

    Same goes for Brooks Robinson a true gentlemen.

    I appreciate the feedback.  Truth be told, I first saw this image on Puck Daddy's blog, and without looking closely, I think everyone (even on that blog) assumed that he was giving away the stick he used to score the OT goal.  Most of the Game 1 news articles even referenced the stick-throwing as part of the celebration, and included the bit about how when Savvy came back out, his stick was somehow back on the ice.  But I wrote 90% of that post thinking it was HIS stick he was handing off.  Only towards the end did I look closer and realize that it was one of the souvenir sticks that the B's provide to the 3 stars.  Not only that, if you look closely, it's a RIGHTY!  Duh to me.  So I edited the paragraph directly under the photo, removing references to it being HIS stick.  That said, I still think he's a great guy and a class act with his fans.  It just loses a bit of coolness that he wasn't giving away the goal-scoring stick like I initially thought.
