Pro On Pro- Dan Petry Keeping An Eye On Son Jeff Petry

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

A year ago, Dan Petry was sitting at home in Farmington Hills, Michigan, watching TV when he caught the pregame festivities from a Montreal Canadiens playoff game.

"I was just blown away by it," the former Detroit Tigers pitcher told ESPN.com Saturday. "They dimmed the lights, they would click on every banner of the retired numbers, and then they had the little young boys come out with the torch and touch the ice and it would turn to flames.

"I just remember calling Jeff and saying, 'You got to see this. This is unbelievable.'"

Little did he know that his son Jeff Petry just a year later would be playing for the Habs, and dad would get to watch the first two postseason games in the electric Bell Centre.

"And Ginette [Reno] singing the national anthem, I just couldn’t believe the atmosphere," said Dan Petry. "To witness it live now, there are no words. I teared up a little bit. It was just beautiful."

It meant a lot to Jeff Petry to have his parents take in the opening two games, as you might imagine.
