My friend Cheryl posted a wonderful anecdote on Facebook and I’d like to share it with you. “I attended the first Michigan State University (MSU) home hockey game last night and the arena was full of MSU students. I had so much fun with the two male students seated next to me. One was from Turkey and the other from Greece. Neither of them had never seen a hockey game before, even on television. I spent much of the evening explaining the game to them. (It helped a great deal that the basics are similar to soccer; which they understood.) One of the young men said that he was trying to understand baseball as well as American football, too. When Sparty, the MSU mascot came by, they were all about taking advantage of the photo op. At the end of the evening we all shook hands, and they thanked me for my explanations. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting these two young men and observing their enthusiasm for taking in the experience. Isn’t this the way it should be?” Yes, Cheryl, this is the way it should be—always. Thank you for sharing this wonderful story.
