While we're the first to admit we have a problem obsessing over sports in general and hockey specifically, a blog post by Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch really touched us.
Wendy Pleau, wife of general manager Larry Pleau, has been battling cancer for a year now. This week the Blues hosted a blood drive at the church across the street from her hospital room at Barnes Jewish Hospital. Rutherford wrote about it here.
Say what you will about Pleau's tenure as GM in St. Louis, it's really nice to see the organization get behind him and his wife. The team also awarded the first annual Wendy Pleau Determination CupÂ to the training camp team to win the round robin tournament.
Kudos to the Blues for a couple of small but very classy initiatives.
