So it finally caught up to me! Benn Olson of the Coventry Blaze and I had a bit of a feud going over my refusal to wear a bow tie that he had given me as a gift. Olson had presented me the tie on a live Premier Sports broadcast – and I was supposed to wear on a follow up game. I didn’t think I could pull it off and Olson was a bit annoyed with me! Here’s the result:
So it’s not everyday you come out of retirement and kit up to go to-to-toe with one of the toughest guys in the UK Elite League! I’m pretty happy to be around to tell the tale and share the video evidence! Big thanks to Benn for being such a great sport, and for showing that hockey players the world over are great guys.
