One of the saddest sights that I have seen, at least recently, is Parker sitting on the edge of the bed, wearing her Blackhawks jersey, watching them get crushed by Nashville. Silent tears streamed down her face but she didn’t want to turn the game off. She said she was crying because they were losing but it was so much more, of course.
After the game we talked about what Dave would have said – that it’s early in the series and they would get ’em in game 3. How excited he would have been. And that made both of us cry.
