Fan Encounters > Hometown Friend

I was lucky enough to be a high school hockey teammate of Tom's in Billerica, Mass. We both played our last high school hockey game together at the old Boston Garden. Tom was the absolute best hockey and baseball player in the state that year. He could have easily played in the NHL, but he obviously made the right choice. As was the case back then, Tom's a down to earth guy who takes the time to ask how the family is doing whenever we get a chance to see each other. His entire family has always been that way. When he's around his high school buddies, he's just one of the boys. That's the way Tom is - a regular guy.
