You Can Play

March 5, 2012

As a former pro hockey player I think this is great!

You Can Play is supported by athletes of all levels and fans in the fight for respect in sports.

In this video: Patrick Burke (Philadelphia), Brian Burke (Toronto), Rick Nash (Columbus), Duncan Keith (Chicago), Brian Boyle (New York), Matt Moulson (New York Islanders), Joffrey Lupul (Toronto), Claude Giroux (Philadelphia), Daniel Alfredsson (Ottawa), Scott Hartnell (Philadelphia), Corey Perry (Anaheim), Andy Greene (New Jersey), Dion Phaneuf (Toronto), Henrik Lundqvist (New York).

Here’s another video of Brian Burke

President and General Manager of the Toronto Maples Leafs Brian Burke talks about encouraging a more tolerant, welcoming atmosphere in the NHL for gay hockey players. Brian’s message was inspired by his son, Brendan, a former manager for his Miami University hockey team. In February 2010, Brendan was killed in a car accident at the age of 21.

    Romans 8:31 (Jordan) 31.             How, then, shall we respond to all this? If God is rootin’ for us, who can win over us? If He didn’t hold back His own Son, but put him in the game for us all, won’t He even more gladly, in addition to His Son, equip us with all we need to win the game?
