This tournament is about a boy, son, who loved the game of hockey. His love for the game was really a love for the idea of a team. He loved his team. He was a team player in the true sense of the word. To him, hockey was all about working together, playing together, sacrificing together for the common good of the team. Through this idea we should all learn that life is about the "team".
This tournament is also about loss and what that means. Adam lost his life in an automobile accident when he was a Junior at Dublin Coffman High School. This was a big loss for the "team". We, his parents lost a son, our children lost a brother, everyone else lost a friend and a teammate. Everyone, that day, lost a very real portion of themselves.
Since that day, I have learned how important our relationships are, friends, family, siblings, teammates, acquaintances. We are so important to each other. We really are made up of little pieces of our relationships. All of our interactions become a real part of us and remain such our entire lives.
I think the lesson to learn here is how very special, important and integral we are to everyone of our friends and they to us. I know at times each of us thinks we are so unimportant and disconnected and that we may not have friends and no one cares about us. The reality is we are ever so important and special to each other. We, and they, often don't know or think of this, but it is true. We only learn this with the loss of a loved one.
This tournament is about friendship and remembering to take care of it. You are so greatly loved and so important in all of your relationships that you need to take great care of yourself.
Happiness is a full team. Work hard. Play hard. Have fun. Most of all, take care of yourself and your teammates.
