I will be very honest with you, I am not into sports, AT ALL.
But I lost my father in my early 20’s and I can certainly relate to Michael Lorenzen on that.
Add in the fact that he walked out in his first game after losing his dad to his father’s favorite band The Who makes it mean that much more to me.
What he did after that, well it’s the kind of thing if you didn’t know it was real you’d think somebody made it up for a movie.
If you don’t know what happened watch the story unfold in the video below.
If you already know you also understand it is worth watching again.
I am a proud native Long Islander. I love playing Rock N' Roll on the air at WBAB as well as with my band Joe Rock and The All Stars. The other things I love are my family, my dog Presley, my Harley and a good meal!
