Alexander Saves the Day!
Shown here is the MVP trophy my son Alexander, Goalie of the Cyclones, won this afternoon for a job well done. He literally saved the day as his team won the hockey game 4 to 2! Today was the opening day of the 2010 Bell Capital Cup, Ottawa International Hockey Festival being hosted by over 2,000 arenas in the National Capital Region. Known as the Friendly Invasion, 8,500 minor hockey players travel from all over Canada, the United States and as far away as Finland and Germany to participate in this, the 11th annual hockey tournament. There are the usual games, but also an All-Star Game and Skills Competition will be held tomorrow, where the best players from each team get to really show their stuff.
