Bobby F%#@ing Ryan
I caught a flight down to LAX in late March of 09. A nice little trip to kickstart the spring, catch some rays, eat some Burritos from Lucky Boy Drive-In and catch up with my buddy down in Huntington Beach.
I dropped off my bag at the Sunset Marquis, grabbed my Raybans and headed to the poolside bar for a bourbon and lemonade. Buffalo Trace of course. Playing on the tv were highlights from the Ducks last game and there was this kid that just completely stood out. Good size, not the fastest but great set of mitts. BFR. My buddy had scored some lower bowl seats for the Ducks next game vs the Avalanche and I was now excited to see this kid in action.
After a quick burger at Apple Pan’s and a couple of cervezas at the Chateau Marmont we headed down the freeway to the rink. BFR did not disappoint potting 2 goals for his 3rd multi goal game as a rookie. Not bad. Dreamt about him playing up in O-town someday so I could see this beauty on a regular basis. And what happens this past July? The arrival of BFR.
We knew that he needed to be celebrated. This smooth kid from PA that had spent his time in sunny California needed a warm welcome to the capital city. Something that spoke to his character. So we created the BFR as a nod to the famous BFM shirt from the good people behind theChive.
#6 on the back and BFR across the top.
