Congrats Jerome!

Jerome Iginla, my favorite non-Red Wing, scored his 600th NHL goal last night.

Although Iginla’s 600th goal came as a member of the Colorado Avalanche, he will be forever known as the captain of the Calgary Flames.

Former Flames’ GM, Craig Button, had this to say about Iginla:

“He doesn’t carry himself with any attitude or arrogance. He’s confident in his abilities. He’s self-assured. He’s genuine. He’s a better person than he is a player, and we all know what kind of player he is.”

That’s saying something when you consider Iginla is only the 19th player in NHL history to score 600 goals.

Perhaps good guys win one in a while.

Good on you Jerome, Congratulations.

Thomas Rawls…

I’m not much of a football fan and I  have to admit I didn’t know who Thomas Rawls was a few minutes ago.  However, I ran across this story while checking my fantasy hockey score and I have to admit, it brought a tear to my eyes.

“Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls may be out for the year with a broken ankle, but that doesn’t mean he’s not still making things happen. On Christmas morning, a young fan named Sophie Ayers received a Rawls jersey under her tree and had the following reaction”

Here’s a link to the story.

Sophie’s reaction is one of the things I love about Christmas.

From now on, when I do happen to watch football, I’ll be pulling for Thomas Rawls.

Good on you Thomas!
