Friday 29th July 2011…2 posts in one day again!!!

Well after I posted the last one packed up and I decided to just go down the road to the church…. a huge parking lot in the back and spend the night there I feel this will be a great place to stay.

So I went for a walk around 9pm down the little village’s main street and came across this lady sitting in a garden swing on the front stoop of her house….IT PAYS TO WEAR YOUR BOSTON BRUIN HOCKEY SHIRT!!!!

She saw the shirt and in French asked me something…I told her I was sorry I did not speak French and she spoke a little English.  She asked about the shirt and invited me to sit with her…..

We had a great time and I found out her son is a very famous ex hockey player who has a Stanley Cup ring.

This is his bio from Wikipedia!!!!

He signed with the Montreal Canadiens in 1986 and made the team's roster in 1989–90 as an undrafted free agent. He played three seasons with the Habs before being dealt to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for a third round draft pick prior to the start of the 1992–93 season. Lefebvre played two seasons with the Leafs before being dealt to the Quebec Nordiques as part of the Wendel Clark-Mats Sundin blockbuster trade on June 28, 1994. Lefebvre played the next five seasons with the Quebec Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche before signing a four-year, $10-million US contract with the New York Rangers that secured a club-option for him to play a fifth season at $3 million in the 1999 off-season. Lefebvre's productivity decreased dramatically and he was considered another overpaid veteran player signed as part of then-general manager Neil Smith's grocery shopping team-building approach. Lefebvre's career low came in the 2002–03 season, when he was assigned to the Rangers farm affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. After the season he left the NHL for one season for the Swiss team SC Bern before retiring.

After winning the Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche in 1996, Lefebvre was involved in an amusing incident that attracted media attention. As part of tradition, each player on the Stanley Cup winning team can take personal possession of the trophy for a day during the summer following the championship, a practice that has led to several misadventures. When it was his turn, Lefebvre decided to have his baby daughter, Alexanne, baptized in it.

She told me all about the teams he played for then asked me if I wanted a drink and I said I would love a water and she went inside her house and came back with drinks, cookies and the photo of her son!!!!!
