Army Visits Avs

from the Denver Post,
In hockey, the words "warrior," "battle" and "tough" are tossed around all the time. At the end of Avalanche practice Tuesday, 12 U.S. Army brigade members who recently have been in battle walked into the team's dressing room. A mutual admiration society developed, as the Army personnel took pictures with their cellphones and gathered autographs, and wide-eyed Avs players asked what it was like in Iraq. "For us, it's an honor to get to meet them," Avalanche captain Joe Sakic said. "These guys risk their lives protecting us."
