A Nice Guy Moment

Good friends of ours moved to Chicago a few weeks ago, and last week, they were at O'Hare Airport.

So was Jonathan Toews, Captain of the Chicago Blackhawks and fresh off winning another Stanley Cup.

He took a picture with them.

That may not seem like much, but I think hockey players do it more often than players in any other team sport. And it was awesome.

Sorry, I'm not posting the picture for privacy reasons, but I've seen it, and everyone (including Toews) has a huge smile on their face.

Oh, and here's the funny part: Eli's friend, who is a few months younger than Eli and absolutely huge, is as tall as Toews. He even looks slightly taller in the picture.

He's also a goalie, and there must be something in the water down here, because he's 6'1", there's another goalie who is 14 and 6'0", and Eli is 5'9" and growing like crazy.

This is abnormal.
