Any time now, the most cherished trophy in all of sports will be hoisted in ecstasy. Although the Stanley Cup won’t be captured by our beloved Ottawa Senators, or even the Toronto Maple Leafs, we certainly invite all Greco members to get behind one of own in Mike Fisher, the captain of the Nashville Predators.
Should Fisher, a former Senator who has been with Nashville since 2010, get his hands on Lord Stanley’s cherished hardware, it wouldn’t be the first time a Greco devotee won hockey’s ultimate prize.
It was 13 years ago that an Ottawa native lifted the Cup over his head as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Dan Boyle may have had his arm twisted by a friend to come to Greco 15 years ago, but he recently called that “one of the best decision I ever made.”
For all but two teams at this point, hockey has entered its offseason, so don’t be surprised to see some strapping guys, who may or may not be in need of dental work, in a Greco near you soon. Tony and Greco co-founder Paolo Fiorin, himself a former London Knight who also played professionally in Europe, have trained Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux, Fisher and Boyle (now retired), and too many other pros and junior pros to list here.
Enjoy Dan’s story HERE, as well as the remainder of the hockey season!
As they say in Smashville, Go Preds Go!
Emotions were running high in Game 2 of the series for Fisher’s biggest fan, wife Carrie Underwood—country star and fellow Greco member. Underwood piped in on Twitter twice in two minutes to express her dismay with the work of the referees. Her first comment was a tame “how was that not be a penalty?” before she unleashed a haymaker.
This game is being called so insanely awful, I can’t even…
Underwood suggested her opinions were likely biased with her hashtags such as #PredsPride #IJustLoveMyHusband” In a way only an old country song might explain, she was only standing by her man.
Even after Pittsburgh grabbed a a 2-0 series lead, Underwood urged her followers in hockey-mad Nashville to keep the faith, and a day later the Predators battled back with a 5-1 win to pull within 2-1.
There’s still a lot of hockey to be played. Let’s show ’em how we do it in #Smashville!!!
