It’s Stanley Cup playoff time, and I love it. I am a New Jersey Devils fan because of Martin Brodeur, well, actually because of what a sports writer wrote about Brodeur. It was during the Patrick Roy era, and I was being introduced to hockey. A friend of mine, who played goalie, was helping me pick a team to cheer for in that year’s playoffs, and we came across an article that began “If Roy had a cousin, an identical cousin…” and was about Brodeur. I wish I knew who wrote it, because I owe that person a thank you.
