A true role model

There are many reasons to get autographs. It can be a souvenir from a favorite player. It can be an addition to a collection. And, unfortunately, there are those who simply view it as a little more money in their pockets.

In this case, though, getting Montreal’s Saku Koivu to sign this oversized 2004 Pacific Exhibit card will serve as a constant reminder of determination, perseverance and, quite honestly, sheer intestinal fortitude.

Having survived cancer, a nasty eye injury and serving as captain of the Canadiens in hockey-crazed Montreal shows a will that I believe is unmatched in the National Hockey League. The lessons to be learned from Saku Koivu should appeal to young and old alike.
