Texan Eric Winston Updates His Blog

I am sitting on my couch watching the Canucks v. Blackhawks game. Vancouver is winning the series right now 2-1. My buddy, Ryan Johnson of the Canucks, is playing the best hockey of his life right now and I couldn’t be happier for him.

He is the kind of guy who is completely unselfish and will do anything it takes for his team to win. In one shift in Game 2 (shift = about a minute) I saw him block three slap shots. If you don’t have a feel for how bad that would hurt, turn on a hockey game and watch these guys blast the puck! The third one went off his hand, needless to say after the game he could barely move it. That was just in one minute. Unreal. This is his first time in the second round of the playoffs and he is playing like his hair is on fire. The Canucks scored in the middle of the second period on a break that was started by, you guessed it, a blocked slap shot off Ryan’s skate.

Congrats bud. It’s a pleasure watching you play.

This weekend I am headed back to Midland for my Dad’s 60th birthday. I haven’t been back, and it will be my wife’s first time in West Texas. I plan on taking her to the house I grew up in and to the house I spent my teenage years. Have to take her by the Cathedral known as Midland Lee High School and the Mecca of high school football, Grande Communications Stadium. I didn’t get to play there, but I feel I had a lot to do with getting it built.
