MY COLLECTION - The Best Piece Of Pink In It

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.

I asked if Colin could autograph it for me and he kindly obliged.  Thanks very much.  I'm planning to take it in to work to put with my other special items.

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.

Love it!!!!  And the pinky just makes me snicker even more.  Thanks very much.

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!

  1. As always, Brett, thanks for your support. All told, and especially with your help, Colin raised more than $100 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

    Concerning that one Keans card, Coach Doug told us that he has heard about that before. He doesn't remember why he was holding the gloves that way, but he started laughing when I asked about it.

    We'll get that package out to you, so you'll have plenty of material, so to speak, to work with.

    Thanks again.

    Ron and Colin
