Once in a Lifetime

Don’t know about you but January 2nd will be a bitter sweet day for Detroit Red Wings fans. The club will retire Steve Yzermans jersey in a ceremony before Tuesday nights game against the Mighty Ducks. So many memories over the 22 seasons of his NHL career, spent entirely with the Wings.

#19 will be retired and raised to the rafters to be displayed along side those of Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Alex Delvecchio, Sid Abel and Terry Sawchuk. What a great honor to have your name immortalized with these hockey icons. In his 22 seasons Yzerman played 1,524 games, scored 692 goals with 1.063 assists and won three Stanley Cups in 97′ (after a drought of 42 years), 98 and 02.’

Cup winners scheduled to attend the ceremony are Brett Hull,. Igor Larionov, Mike Vernon, Steve Duchene, Larry Murphy, Joe Kocur, Doug Brown and the entire coaching staff of Scotty Bowman, Dave Lewis and Barry Smith.

Thinking you’d like to go to this once in a lifetime event? Dig deep. Tickets are scarse and are going for more than sticker. Much more than sticker. And yes, I know of someone who is holding a pair. Me!
