It’s Just A Game.
For all of the times I’ve said I hated so and so, within the context of hockey, never have I meant it.
The death of Brendan Burke, a kid I admired for his strength of character, made me take pause when thinking about the terms I so flippantly throw around in this game. These are not characters on TV, they are real people.
My deepest sympathies to the Burke family in the face of this horrible tragedy.
May time soothe all wounds, even those as deep as the loss of a child. I cannot even begin to fathom your grief.
