Now that's supporting the troops!

So I guess today is Hockey Friday, because my wife just sent me this and I can't NOT write about it.

Hockey Equipment Headed To Troops In Iraq

If you're the type that doesn't click on links, the story is about some groups, including the Boston Bruins Foundation, donating street hockey equipment to troops in Iraq for a small league some of them have formed there.

That is super cool and warms my heart. I can't imagine what it must be like for those men and women over there, but I'm sure a diversion such as hockey is cherished. Although I can't imagine playing goalie in the heat of the Iraqi desert. Oof!
