Sorry I'm a little late with Colby Armstrong Days. I spent day number 20 of our summer countdown working in the not-so-lovely City of Philadelphia. While I was there, I learned a few important things.
I couldn't let Colby Armstrong Days pass us by without showing my boy some love. I'm a new hockey fan, so besides Jaromir Jagr, Colby was my first favorite hockey player. I'm a football fan by birth and a hockey fan by choice, so Colby will always have a special place in my heart, no matter what sweater he is wearing. I still remember where I was and what I was doing when I found out Colby got traded. Definition of sad day.
