Am I out of it? Last night I went to a Boston Bruins game. Reality set in. There was action, noise and advertising. Forty, fifty and sixty year old men and women wearing $125.00 Bruins jerseys with the names and numbers of the players on their back. As I sat there I had to wonder how many of the cheering audience had any concern for grow local.
Well one former Bruin, Andrew Ference does. He now plays for the Edmonton Oilers. As a Bruin he visited our local High School and had lunch with those students who rode their bikes to school. Hingham is a big hockey town and his visit was a huge success.
Andrew is interested in his carbon footprint and has 500 NHL players doing something to protect the environment. http://www.davidsuzuki.org/blogs/panther-lounge/2011/06/playing-for-the-green-team-andrew-ference/
I miss not having Andrew in Boston however I am sure he is doing great things for the environment in Edmonton. Good luck Andrew, you are good for Canada and all of us.
