A couple of weeks ago, Mike stood as the only New York Rangers fan in a house full of LA Kings fans during The Stanley Cup Finals. It was decided that if the Rangers won, my cousins would toss Mike into the pool. If the Kings won, my cousins would still toss Mike into the pool. Getting thrown into the pool at my Aunt Gail's house is a sort of baptism in my family.
This is my godson, Gavin, who has always had a very intuitive and sensitive nature. He pulled Mike aside and whispered, "If the Rangers win, you can throw me in the pool, Mike."
