As I was working outside my house today, trimming away foliage that the Termite company had accidentally painted as they restored my home to a termite-free status before we move next week, I unexpectedly saw a package on my front porch, addressed to me, from Schereville, IN. I was confused... everyone I knew who lived in Schereville (my cousins Mike & Tom) had moved out of there many years ago... so who was sending me something?
I opened the package, to find an unexpected surprise from my very cool little brother. A customized Tony Esposito #35 Blackhawks jersey, from one of my little brother's friend's businesses ("he knows a guy" ... he's from Chicago). Very cool! When I was in Chicago recently, I inquired if such a jersey was in stock, and my brother called his friend who said no, it would have to be special ordered and take 6 weeks or so... so I told my little brother not to worry about it. When my little brother called to ask me what my address is, and when I am moving earlier this week, I should have known something was up!! Thanks little brother!!
Now, I need to find an Anaheim Ducks oriented sports bar to go to tonight and wear my new jersey... heh heh heh! Let's hope da Hawks even it up to 2-2, and don't let the Ducks go 3-1.
And I promise not to get into any fights with Ducks fans. = )
