Well, Operation Eaves is complete and now we have something to show for it. Josh completed his posted, which was genius by the way, and it made it's way to Patrick along with all of your messages to the fallen Wing.
Well Josh got a little something in return today from Mr. Eaves himself. A picture and a note to go along with it. Here's the note from Patrick himself:
To the Fans:
"I want to thank everyone who sent a get well card or left a message on this website with such encouraging comments. I appreciate everyone keeping me in your thoughts during this tough year for me. Between the cool poster and all the kind words, I was blown away by the best fans in hockey. The cards and comments brought up my spirits and I just want to thank all of you for your support. I look forward to coming back next season."
And the picture, after the jump:
Pretty cool everyone. Give Josh credit for a hell of a job well done.
Thats awesome, not every athlete would actually bother or take time to reply to a group of fans. Roll on next season lad!
Hey Chris, is there any chance I could get into the blog roll? Take a look and see what you think. I'm a big wings fan obviously, but I live in Ontario so I've branched out a little bit.
If not, I understand. But thanks anyways! :)
@gfa5eat1 Saw this coming. If you're such a Wings fan why are you bigging up Weber and pretty much celebrating what he did to Zetterberg?
@Reddy Celebrating? I'm showing how it proves he's tough. No one is going to mess with Weber. Sure I hated him during the series and the season, but both are over.
Plus I'm Canadian. I cheer for my national team too, and Weber is one of the best if not the best defenseman in the league.
And I just couldn't give my award to either Karlsson or Chara. Neither of them deserve it.
@gfa5eat @D.M.N I can do that. Keep it coming, all I ask is that while I don't mind an occasional post in the comments here linking to your blog, just keep it to a reasonable level. Great job though man.
@D.M.N True that.
@gfa5eat @Reddy I'm Canadian, and still hate the fact rosby had the GWG in Vancouver, would have rather had the silver honestly... Weber my have skill but he's school on Saturday. Never liked Avery even when he dawned the winged wheel... Keep this one about Eaves, and LGRW!
@Reddy And if even if you're American you might not like Ryan Suter, but at the 2010 Olympics when he was playing for the U.S.A., I bet you liked him. If he gets signed to Detroit you'll like him even more, just like if Weber got signed to Detroit you would love him. Even if you don't like him because he plays for Nashville, you can't deny his skill.
Whoa look at our man Eaves! Nice stache indeed, and some of the best hockey hair in the business. Glad we could boost his spirits in any way possible. Miss that man. Thanks Josh (and Michelle) for the work put into all this, it's great to be a part of.
Give Michelle credit for coming up with the idea to do something special! :) Everyone chipped in on this thing.
