Well, here we are again. A new Blues season is upon us and, once again I, your lovable English grump, have the honour of deciding the season's Charity Bet. We've had #RoyWatch and #OttSpot in previous years, but this year's is a tad different!
This season, my ire falls on Troy Brouwer. Well, not so much ire, but annoyance at the assurances from the management brain trust that the team will be 'Reckless' and 'Faster', yet trade for Brouwer who, while not a slouch, isn't the upgrade we were sold on.
The premise is very simple, but has one change this season. I will donate $2 for every regular season point that Mr Brouwer puts up. For the change, I reached out to him and asked him to name his own charity that he wished the proceeds to go to.
His choice was: The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada! A charity very close to his heart (no pun intended for once!)
And the hashtag of choice? Every time he notches a point, post #ByTheBrouwerOfGreyskull on social media!
So that's it. The 2015/16 Great St. Louis Game Time Charity Bet is in full swing! Every point that Troy Brouwer scores will see $2 go to The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada!! Let's reach deep and hopefully reap the rewards!!!
