A few months ago, I wrote about another John Wroblewski. This John Wroblewski played hockey at Notre Dame and then for the Fresno Falcons. He has coached for team USA and is now the Assistant Coach of the Wheeling Nailers in the ECHL. The Nailers finished the 2010-11 season with a record of 38-29.
A couple months after my post on John, he left a comment on it stating that one of his friends told him about my post and blog. He also gave me his email address.
I was happy that he saw the piece and happier that he responded. I emailed him and expressed my gratitude. We exchanged a few emails and he asked for my address, saying he had something he thought I would like.
A couple weeks later, I received a box in the mail. I was stunned at what was inside. It was one of his Falcons jerseys and it was signed! How cool and nice was this!?
Next season, the Chicago Express will join the ECHL and John Wroblewski and the Nailers will be coming to Chicago. I hope to meet John then and thank him in person.
