"From the moment I laid eyes on [Mario Lemieux], he became my hockey hero. It never occurred to me that one day I’d be playing with him on the same team. I saw every one of his games and couldn’t take my eyes off the television screen. My mom complained that it almost made her deaf. I sat in front of the television and screamed: "Mario! Mario!"
My mom was completely beside herself and asked me if I’d lost my mind.
"Why are you so hung up on that Mario? You don’t even know a single person named Mario!" she exclaimed."
