  1. Hello Ryan!

    So, as the story goes the MB Herald asked if they could use one of my pics. I was happy to do so and then suddenly wondered-what if I totally don’t resonate with the article attached to my picture?! Anyways, it was cool how alot of your thoughts made me chuckle (in a good way). Yep, we just forked out money for a fancy track suit for our ten year old! Now I thought the even cooler thing is that you are good friends with J (at least he thinks so). I am Andrea’s sister and she has talked alot about your family and the great friends you are to them! Anyways, thought I would send a hello your way!

    • Good to hear from you Judith! I’m glad the piece resonated a bit with your experience as a hockey parent. And great picture! I was very happy to see the one they chose for the article.

      (J thinks correctly… We have really enjoyed getting to know J and Andrea over the last few years and appreciate their friendship very much.)
