The Spirit of Stan

A few months before our beloved Chicago Blackhawks ended a five-decade drought and won the Stanley Cup, Ronna gave me this Stan Mikita action figure, which has since been perched on my computer while I have kept track of Hawks' happenings on the internet. As you all know, Stan was a small, classy playmaker who only in the latter years of his career donned a helmet. He was one of the best in the game, but, alas, he never hoisted the Cup. But he is now an ambassador for the Hawks and his spirit helped keep our spirits up during the many tense moments we experienced in the drive that ended in springtime delirium. OK, so the Habs had a good run, too.

Gotta love an action figure from the sales table at Giant Tiger. Stan found a good home with you!
