Guy Behind the Guy: Letter from Boston
Last night was a special night for Scott Walker for so many reasons that I cannot even begin to explain. But I think this email that we received today from a fan in Boston pretty much says everything you need to know about Scott Walker as a human being.

To Whom it may concern---I just wanted to drop you a note telling you how appreciative my friend’s son was last night of rec’ing the game puck—it really made his night—even though the Bruins lost—Walker did not have to do that but he singled out a 9 year old boy to flip the puck to him---to me that is what Pro Sports are all about. And Walker showed GREAT Respect for the game, the Team, and the FANS…HE IS a Class Act—and a great representative for your organization---please thank him for me.

Regards, Craig
