With their first pick in the 2031 NHL Draft, the Devils select...

Here is a short and very sweet post. Earlier today, like 12:48 am, my wife gave birth to my second child and my second son. When we named our first son my wife liked the name Quinn and so did I. If he was a boy there was no doubt there. This latest addition, we had two names. Both were names she came up with and both were good names, but in the end Rhett was the winner. 

Of course names always bring up other memories, and here are my two.

Believe it or not, Rhett Warrener was my first thought....




And the other "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!"


So there you have it, my family is bigger, more male and the Devils have a new fan as long as there are no lockouts and my latest Son doesn't decide to cheer for a different club (which he is more than welcome to, I don't brain-wash).

I am very proud of my wife and son, they did extremely well and it certainly puts the rest of life into perspective when you witness the miracle of life!

  1. Congrats, man! I, too, am trying to raise a hockey fan, but my four-year-old told me that her favorite hockey team is "The Butterflies." Oh well, at least it isn't the Flyers.
