Life Beyond The Movies

Hockey Humor

I’m not usually into email forwards… but my friend Leeanne sent me this one and I just had to share it. Any true hockey fan will love this one:

Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman and Wayne Gretzky are standing before God at
the throne of Heaven. God looks at them and says: “Before granting any of
you a place at my side, I must first ask each of you what you believe in.”

Addressing Lemieux first He asks, “What do you believe?” Mario looks into
God’s eyes and states passionately, “I believe hockey to be the food of
life. Nothing else brings such unbridled joy to so many people, from Moscow
to the bright lights of New York. I have devoted my life to bringing such
joy to people who watch us play.” God looks up and offers Mario the seat to
his left. He then turns to Yzerman,

“And you Stevie Y. What do you believe?”
Yzerman stands proud and firm, ” I believe courage, honour and passion are
the fundamentals to life and I’ve spent my whole playing a career that
provides a living embodiment of these traits.” God, moved by the passion of
the speech offers Yzerman the seat to his right.

He finally turns to the Great One, ” And you Wayne. What do you believe?” Wayne says, ” I believe
you are in my seat.”
