Rick Machan

Thank you for staying with the Leafs.

In 2003 I was given, from my wife for my birthday, 4 tickets to see the Leafs play at the Air Canada center. You can’t imagine how happy I was as this was a once in a lifetime trip. My wife, myself and our two children went. We were there early enough to see the pre-game skate so I took my son down to ice level. I realize prior to game start all players have their game faces on and the players quite frequently have to endure nutty fans. With my son (7 yrs old at the time) at the glass he was waving frantically at anybody that would notice. Mr. Domi you were the only one that took the time to acknowledge my sons presence with a thumbs up. He still remembers that, as do I.

Mr. Domi we missed you last season and wish you only the best in 2005 / 2006.

Thank you for putting a smile on Alex’s face (and mine).

Rick Machan.
