Seeing these faces made me feel like I was 11 years old all over again. It made me think back to the days when my brother and I would get to the rink in plenty of time to catch the pre-game warm up. Even if our seats were far back under the second balcony of the Winnipeg Arena, the ushers would allow us to sit right at the glass behind the net for the warm up. Although they may be older now, my heroes are looking great and are excited to be back in Winnipeg to dawn that familiar logo which is impossible not to love.
