He is not just a hockey player.
To most of us, our favorite hockey player is more than just that. They are our inspiration, our motivation to keep on going. They show us that you should never give up. They don’t listen to the hate, being strong enough to just ignore it. These actions inspire you to follow their path of positivity. Maybe you don’t feel the same way as I do, but I know that my favorite player has made a huge difference in my life, and in no way am I embarrassed to say so. Go ahead. Call me a puck slut. Tell me that I know nothing about hockey. In the end, you don’t know my story. You do not know what he did for me. As I said, he is my inspiration and reason I kept/keep going.
