With hockey season now finally underway (I’m a huge fan) I thought I’d share with you one of my most treasured NHL-related mementos…
This photo was taken by my Mom at our old home in Evergreen – the man between my sister and I is none other than former San Jose Shark, Perry Berezan.
Somehow, my aunt knew someone who in turn knew Perry – and as cool as hockey players are, he was able to drop in and say “hello, eh!”
Now, as amazing as it was to have a bona fide hockey player visit your house – one moment in particular still stands out for me.
Perry asked me, “What’s your favorite part of hockey?”
I later found out he expected me to say, “The fights.” But instead I said, “The goals.” That must have resonated with him – because he said so to my aunt after he left.
I’m still not sure how she got Perry to come to the house – but damn am I appreciative of it!
Oh and don’t ask about the floral print couches – it was a LONG time ago…
