The Winnipeg Jets unleashed their new Logo yesterday. Say what you will about it, if you don’t like it, I think it will grow on you.
We took the Divas downtown Winnipeg today to see Eric Fehr at the MTS Centre. Both Piper and Davilyn were pretty excited. Piper loves to hear the stories about the player we billeted around the time she was born. As a result of billeting Sami Sandell, from Finland, we were fortunate to meet quite a few players. Some of who went on to play in the NHL. Like, Eric Fehr.
Piper brought her Blues Jersey with her (from her first season of being a hockey player) and she and Eric Fehr talked about how they both have the same number. At least now that he is playing in Winnipeg they do.
We had a few minutes to chat with Eric while he signed our shirts. He remembers our basement … and all the video games they played down there.
None of the girls really know just how famous an NHL hockey player can be but they did not seem to care.
Someday the Divas will look back on these photos and think how awesome it was to meet an NHL hockey player…. A Winnipeg Jet. And me? Well, I must admit that I am getting excited about all the hype. Excited for the season opener. Excited for my parents, Craig, Piper and myself to see some games this year. Davilyn and Quinn are still a bit too young, but Piper is darn excited and she can’t wait!
