I would like to say thank you to Jeff Spurgess for giving me tickets to the Joe Kocur Charity Softball game. It was great to see one of my favorite Red Wings, Darren McCarty, out there playing.
It seems that the older I get the less I follow sports. However, when I was younger I was a big fan of the Detroit Red Wings. I would watch all of their games and followed the team when they won the Presidents Cup in 1996 only to lose to Colorado in the finals. Also, I followed the team when they won the Stanley Cup over the Flyers in 1997.
The most exciting part of the charity softball game was seeing the Red Wings, Darren McCarty in a kilt. It reminded of me of my kilt days at The College of Wooster (see picture).
Again, Jeff thanks for the tickets. I had a lot of fun.
