Congratulations to Chugger and the Kodiaks, another National Title, way to go. No one can ever take this accomplishment away from you all.
To all my former teammates on the Kodiaks, way to turn things around after last season's disappointment. How sweet it must feel to be the top team in Canada, again.
Coach Hummel, you are a true Class Act, and congratulations to you and your Staff. It's been a long, long time since the last time the Kodiaks hosted the Presidents cup at Lions Arena. I can still remember watching you, Barry Rooymans, Greek(with the Butch Goring Special)and the rest of the Kodiaks wearing those God awful brown jersey's and taking on the Sanderson's from Orangeville for the Cup. I'm sure those memories make this victory even sweeter.
Congratulations to the Kodiak Family for putting on a first class event. I had my doubts on whether you could pull it off or not, but it appears you were successful in raising the bar that our friends in Owen Sound set so high two years ago. Hopefully you will have raised enough money to help the players buy these rings, this time.
Finally to my great friend and teammate for all these years, Chugger. You are amazing and KW is lucky to have such a great person and ambassador for the Game of Lacrosse in our town. You are the greatest Lacrosse player ever to come from our town and any recognition you get is more than deserved. You know that Ruth is looking down on you with tears of pure joy for the accomplishments you have made in her name. Make no mistake the Kodiaks belong to the Dietrich Family. All my love to you and your family, I know we'll all be hangin out real soon.
Here's to Drinking From The Cup!
