Humbled By A Hockey Hero

The other day I received a personal telephone call from Jean Béliveau.
Oh my goodness – JEAN BELIVEAU! 

In the professional hockey world, Béliveau is a man Wayne Gretzky looks up to. We’re talking a BIG name here. Mention the name Jean Béliveau to anyone remotely familiar with hockey – or anyone with a Canadian birth certificate – and the recognition will show immediately. It’s a certain “knowing” look in the eyes, a kind of formal glow of respect and admiration.
