I'm not a hockey fan. Or sports fan. Or athlete in any way. But I can appreciate the enthusiasm Winnipeggers have for the return of the Jets. Though my favourite Jets fan actually doesn't live in Winnipeg.
This is my third (or fourth?) cousin Roel, skating behind his home in Broek op Langedijk. The Dutch prefer their speed skaters (hence his skates), but when my father sent Roel this Jets toque, it became one of his favourite things. Mel and I are hoping to send gloves to match.
Winnipeg Jets - meet your Dutch ambassador.
