Dan's Thought of the Day - 2/21/2013

by Dan Rusanowsky / San Jose Sharks

It's always fun to visit Chicago. It's a big city, with plenty of character and just as many characters.

A case in point: the practice facility that the Sharks are skating at today has a homespun name: Johnny's Ice House. It's on the second floor of a building that's between the United Center and the Magnificent Mile.

On the walls of Johnny's are a few written sayings that I thought I'd share with you:

"To win the game is great. To play the game is greater. To love the game is greatest."

"Don't judge those who try and fail. Judge only those who fail to try."

"Success is a journey, not a destination."

"If you lose,say little. If you win, say less."

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."

"If there is no one in your way, then you're not going anywhere."

It's always interesting to see what people are saying about the game (and how they say it) as we travel around the country.
