Tonight the Montreal Canadiens retired Patrick Roy’s number. Patrick Roy is one of the best goaltenders to ever play the game. Below is a video of another elite goaltender, Roberto Luongo, one of the best in the league (who ironically got injured this afternoon) talking about Roy. He was asked who the best goaltenders were…never once does he mention himself although he should always be talked about when talking about the best goaltenders. This is just another reason why I love hockey players, they’re humble, and they are absolutely the best people you will ever meet.
The Canadiens had a great ceremony for Roy, and although there probably were some hurt feelings with him leaving all of that was left behind and he received a great ceremony.
Congrats Patrick Roy!
Scene: Me laying on the couch, watching hockey, my mom walking in the door.
Mom walks in through the hall.
MOM: How’s my favorite turtle?
Me: Turn my head and give a funny look.
MOM: RICKY! RICKY!! He’s watching hockey!! Look Bethany, he’s watching hockey.
Me: *Get up and look at the turtle*
Sure enough he’s at the edge of his tank, watching the game.
Me: He’s definitely my turtle.
My life is INSANE right now. I wish I had time to write all of it down. My life, is exactly where I want it to be. It’s only getting better.
Tell me that you don’t love these guys.
