É engraçado como a vida nos surpreende. Em um momento você está comemorando uma boa notícia com um amigo, e no outro está dizendo palavras que nunca imaginou que diria. E é isso que estou fazendo aqui hoje, dizendo coisas que para mim ainda parecem surreais, não fazem sentido na minha cabeça. Eu conheci o Sheldon no momento em que pisei em Harvard, e posso dizer que senti uma conexão entre nós dois, algo que não sinto com qualquer pessoa, mas tive a certeza de que nós juntos faríamos uma diferença, e graças a isso tive dois maravilhosos anos no jornal da nossa querida universidade, e graças a ele também. Sheldon além de tudo, além de ser um chefe, era um amigo, um mestre, alguém para seguir o exemplo, eu tinha a certeza que um dia o mundo saberia quem Sheldon Hudson era, pois o mundo merecia isso… Merecia ter alguém como o Sheldon. Um alguém que estará sempre em nossos corações da melhor maneira possível, e não vamos lembrar ou pensar na maneira como ele terminou, mas sim, na maneira como ela vivei e como conseguiu tocar cada um de nós. Sheldon, eu dedico isso a você, meu grande amigo, vá em paz.

Talk Ryan Suter to me.

Oh gosh you definitely know more about him than I do but I will do my best!

ALRIGHT so baby Ryan was in skates by the time he was two years old (because when your dad and uncle are both Olympians do you really have a choice?). Family genes dictated that he’d become a phenomenally good hockey player, and before college he spent two seasons with the U.S. National Team Development Program and was drafted seventh overall by the Preds in 2003. AND! He helped the U.S. junior national team win its first-ever gold medal at worlds in 2004. :)

Then it was off to the University of Wisconsin (again, the whole “in his genes” thing), where he only spent one season… buuuuut in that season he had a plus-19 rating (holy crap???) and was named to the All-WCHA Third Team and the WCHA All-Rookie Team. Pretty casual. He played his first NHL game in 2005, and I’ll skip giving his yearly stats but his USA Hockey bio has “led all players in [insert stat here]” SO MANY TIMES. WTF. He’s been an All Star and a Norris Trophy finalist and averages approximately 87 million minutes of ice time per game. And he’s alternate captain for the Wild.

Ryan also happens to be a two-time Olympian (and was alternate captain on both teams, nbd) and won silver in 2010. He led the 2010 team in ice time (WHOA SHOCKER) and assists and tied for the tournament lead with a plus-9 rating. (And we’ll pretend Sochi didn’t happen, ‘cause hahahahaha eff that. Bye.)

ALSO ALSO he’s the only child of a Miracle on Ice team member to become an Olympian/play in the NHL. And he wears the same number his dad did. :’) And he named his first son Brooks (as in Herb. I KNOW RIGHT. I CRY.)

And he’s soft-spoken and lovely and the actual cutest human????

TL;DR – Ryan Suter is wonderful, 10/10 would recommend.
