Over the month of October, I have been following The Hockey Life a little closer than normal. Young Colin has been providing some well used hockey tape in the hopes of raising money for a very worthy cause.
Game-used blade tape was carefully removed each week and put up for auction on ebay. All the money earned from the auctions are donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
And although there were no bids on the final auction (sadly....the starting price was just $2.49!!!), Colin and crew built up over $76 in funds.
My nicely laid out tape arrived last week.
In addition to the stick tape, there were a couple bonus surprises in the package.
Some of you may recall the Doug Keans story. Well he currently coaches Colin. So these cards have a special connection.
I also received a Trevor Linden card from ITG's Heroes and Prospects and a very nice handwritten letter from Colin himself.
Thanks very much for taking the time to write to me. And thank you for everything you sent.
Continue having a great season guys!
Exciting, boring and overwhelming
