For those of you who do not know, I love hockey. I have managed, along with going to a college that has two ice rinks and only approximately 2,500 students, to pass this love onto my oldest daughter. Last night, as I stood to clap for the home team as they made the playoffs for the first time in six seasons, I was with my daughter and, in my thoughts, with my father who held season tickets to the Binghamton Senators for years. He would have been so happy the Senators made the playoffs.
And in the bottom row of people in this photo, posted by a former colleague of my father’s and a current friend of mine, are my daughter and myself.
