        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!!

      Last year when I went with my family I made a big sign and I won a bowling pin with a 50 $ bowling thing

    • 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.

            Thanks for the kind words. I was the first performer signed by the Bulldogs back in 1996. Since then I have been working on my skills and have absolutely loved every minute of being the Bulldogs team mascot.

      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 Hockey Sweater read by Roch Carrier 

    An animated version of a short story by Roch Carrier, who narrates this tale based on his boyhood experiences in rural Quebec. Imagine a young boy’s chagrin when his only Montreal Canadiens hockey sweater wears out and ‘Mr. Eaton’ sends him a Toronto Maple Leafs sweater by mistake!

        He was forced to wear the other jersey. He wanted to wear the Toronto maple leafs jersey but his mom wanted to get a New Jersey and he got the other one. Even if they ordered a new Toronto maple leafs jersey it would most likely come until spring and he would get to play in it until the next winter.

      I don’t think he should have been judged on what he was wearing to the hockey game. It is more important to be the most passionate at what you love to do, in this case hockey than something you wear to impress others, in this case his coach and team members.

      i think Roch meant he was getting humiliated by wearing the leafs sweeter at his game because his hole team liked the Montreal Canadians

    • rkim2029 9:45 pm on October 29, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      I think Roch meant that the sweater was maybe thick and heavy or because he “was weighed down” emotionally as in he was upset.
