I have been a lifelong New York Islanders fan and it's obvious my all time favorite Islander is Ed Westfall. This photo was taken at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario Canada. It had been many years since I had seen the Stanley Cup in person. The minute I had stepped into the hall where the cup was held, I dropped to my knees as if I was in church. My friend thought I was fooling around, but believe me the moment was too moving.
