Meeting Trevor Linden
It's already been five years (!) since Canucks fans had to say goodbye to Trevor Linden. On Friday night I got to say hello to him, as he is in Terrace, British Columbia as the guest speaker at a community fundraising event. The funny thing is after all these years I had no idea what I was going to say to him now that I finally had the chance!
Here's my full Trevor Linden biography, with plenty more coverage here.
Update: I don't get to pick up my photo with Trevor Linden until sometime on Saturday, so the following photo will have to do tonight:
All in all it was a pretty surreal experience. To no surprise Linden came across as genuine, sincere, and fully engaged. I had a chance to shake his hand and, believe it or not, talk a little bit about the local running scene. As he autographed a pencil sketch of him I have I was able to thank him for 20 great years of memories, 1994 and just for being a great example for kids right across the province as well as for myself.
