        I think that Bruiser is really good at talking and really deserved his job. Bruiser, you make the bulldogs a lot better! Do you like your job Bruiser? If I got asked to do that job, I would say yes, definitely. I love the bulldogs! Bruiser you are awesome!!!

          You know what Davis I would choose the hockey sweater because it just leaves you hanging at the end of the book. 🙂

      i think that boy was so focessed on what other people think then focessing on whats important and that is the true joy of playing hockey of scoring a goal or getting an assist or meeting one of your true fans just stepping on the ice is a privilidge and he does not deserve to wear any jersy or play in any game!!!! A true hockey player loves the game of hockey no matter what team or jersy!!

    • knguyen4768 9:43 am on October 29, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      I think he was to focused on what other people would think I mean just because he has a difrent jersey doesn’t mean he can’t get treated the same. When he got the sweater he hated it he thought to much about what other people would think and “betraying” his team. When he got to the game he got called off just beacuse he had a difrent jersey. When he could have gone on he got called off because there were to many players. He broke him hockey stick in anger and the reff came over and said… Go to the church and pray to god !! So he did that. But he was still thinking about heat people would think that’s why he prayed for moths to eat up his sweater.

      I think the message the story gave out was just because you have to try something new doesn’t mean you have to act the same. Just because other people wear something else doesn’t mean you have to stand in with them. You should stand out no matter if you choose to wear something else or act different. Just because there is a new trend or everyone acts the same doesn’t mean you have to! You can act the way you want to you can wear whatever you want and you shouldn’t be neglected by that! You shouldn’t need to cry about not having the same clothes or not liking the same person because in the end we’re all people who just sleep at the end of the day. We shouldn’t need to be treated differently than other people.

          Bruiser I would like to thank you for being the best mascot ever.Ever year I come to the bulldogs game for loads of fun every time I participate in a activitie I always leave with satisfaction.Bruiser I was wondering how old were you when you decided to be the one and only legendary unique mascot for the bulldogs.I know that you are enthusiastic and positive and would be a great role model. I would love if you replied if not it’s fine your very busy. Thanks.

      I think it was really sad that the boy was persuaded that to be a great hockey player he needed to have a special hockey jersey.I think these things happen because of peer pressure and if I were in his shoes I would have told them that something does not make you a better person or better at anything what really matters is if you have the skills to play if not you need to try.I think that you should believe in your self and remember you don’t need something to make you good you need to try and never give up

        The author made me sympathize , with Paul a canada hockey fan watching Canada vs the silviot union, and not having his dad, who loves hockey with him. Not being able to watch with Paul. I felt sad for Paul because I would like my family with me. And I felt happy at the end when Paul got to watch one of the games with his WHOLE family. That was a touching story that I like!

          I feel SO bad for Paul. I understand that his dad is important. I think that when Paul is with his dad it makes a special moment more special!

      • tgray9056 7:05 pm on November 10, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        The story is told from Paul’s point of view. It helps you relate to Paul and what he is feeling. You feel sad for him when his dad has to go away on a work trip and when Canada was losing the tournament. He had felt so confident that Canada would win but it was starting to look like the Soviet Union would win. I felt sorry for him when the coach was telling him to pass the puck and he wanted to talk to his dad but his dad was away working.

      we read this book today and i thought it was good and i think that the author’s message is to never give up.I think that because when paul said that there is no use for canada the mom said there is still time paul didn’t belive her and paul gave up on team canada during the sumit series but team canada ended up winning.

        when we read the book today i thought the authors mesage was dont judge a team before u play , i think this because the hockey players were being to over confadent and thought they were going to smoke the soviet union but after all they were down 3 games , even though they came back to win it they could of lost because they needed to win 3 games and the soviet union had one

        i think that the authers massge is to try your hardest beause when paul gave up he never tried to be pationt and the team tried thier hard thats how they were wining.
