Thank You Ryan O’Reilly

As some of you may or may not have read, I wrote a pretty nasty article that pretty much stopped short of punching an Arby’s sandwich a week or so ago when the Avalanche lost a terrible, uninspired game against the Minnesota Wild. I deservingly received the ire of a few Avs fans who disagreed with my diatribe; especially after I said that I may not cheer for the Colorado Avalanche in the future if they don’t start spending money. I am here to say that I regret a lot of what I said in that story, mainly because I was running off of pure unadulterated anger when writing it. The truth is that no matter how much I want to turn away at times, I just can’t… I love this team too much.



But on to what I was going to say in the first place… Thank you Ryan O’Reilly. Thank you for winning games with hard work and passion. Thank you for playing with heart and with a purpose. When Adrian Dater first said sometime last year that he believed that you would be a good candidate for captain in the near future I didn’t agree simply looking at the stats sheet; but now I am almost certain that not only will you be the future captain of this franchise but you have the potential to be a star in this league.

Most of all… THANK YOU FOR SENDING THE RED WINGS FANS HOME CRYING LAST NIGHT; THEIR TEARS WERE AS SWEET AS WINE ON A SUMMERS DAY! I almost wish someone at the door at Pepsi Center could gather all the tears into thousands of vials and pour it into a fountain outside of the Altitude Store. How beautiful a fountain that runs off of the tears of Red Wings fans would be.

GO AVS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
