Kara and I brought the kids to the UConn CCSU game on Sunday and they marveled at the place that to them is home to Disney on Ice and the circus. My almost 8 year old daughter eyed a familiar blue and green logo hanging from the rafters and asked, “Dad, what happened to the Hartford Whalers?”
The logo is familiar to my children because I’ve noticed several of their classmates wear Hartford Whalers gear to school, and of course, we have a few things in our house, too, like Christmas ornaments, a mug, pennants, and a few other trinkets I could probably get decent bucks for on Ebay.
I told my girl I hope they come back. In the meantime, let’s at least bring the Whalers Hall of Fame out of storage.
