Fewer people gave me an easier opportunity to ask the guys my quick question being fully aware they probably just wanted to go home.

It was a somber night after the Florida Panther game this past Friday night after suffering a brutal shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers who are already out of the playoff race. I was surprised the players even answered my one question. I even got a few to smile at the question which was good to see after such a tough loss.

When my children were barely able to grasp hold of things with their little hands, my beard was lovingly grasped and with a downward pull my face was brought to theirs for many kisses and hugs — especially before bedtime.
