I'm So Proud of my Bro In Law
« on: March 18, 2007, 10:06:36 am »
My BIL plays hockey (or shall I say "played") hockey for the University of Alaska Nanooks (in Fairbanks, AK). This year was his 3rd year playing under a 4 year scholarship. He plays defence but is classified as an "offensive defenseman" as he is a playmaker within the game...

Last night at 11:30 PM our time we got a call from him - he was offered an NHL contract and is signing with the Columbus Blue Jackets today!!! He flies out tomorrow to Ohio to sign all the paperwork! We are SO excited and SO proud of him!!! ;D ;D ;D

Neat thing is that they fly out the family for his 1st home game. He is scheduled to practice with them all this week then play next week. Kind of a bummer for me as I won't be able to fly being pregnant, but Eric will get to go - how cool is that? I'm going to have to get his 1st game on satellite or something to watch from home! ;)

Neat huh?!  ;D

You'll have to tell us when the games are on so everyone can watch.  He will be the most well supported (fan wise) player out there.
Thanks,
