For me, one of the things that comes along with the official end of summer is missing PEI. The biggest thing I miss is simply being away from everything with my family, and that includes a lot of great Celtic music. We go to see Cynthia MacLeod, Fiddlers’ Sons, and Richard Wood whenever we can. Luckily, sometimes these PEI performers come to Massachusetts and we get a bit of The Island here.
Another part of Prince Edward Island comes in the form of a 6’4” defenseman, and it’s easy to see why my family is such a huge fan of Adam McQuaid. Not only is he an Islander who plays tough, smart hockey; he plays for the B’s! He was also nice enough (thanks to my connection, a.k.a. Mom) to get me this pass – signed by John Bucyk himself. I’m really glad I got to be up there for Adam McQuaid Day this summer.
Here’s to Quaider getting back to playing ASAP! Can’t wait for my next visit to The Island!
