We had a wonderful vacation in Kelowna and were
just heading back to Vancouver. The weather was hot and our car was
hotter. Everyone was tired and cranky. All of sudden the car started
smoking. My dad said something that I wonít repeat and my mom looked
My dad got out and started waving his hands to make people stop so that
they would help us. Every car that stopped said that they were sorry but
they couldnít help. Things were going badly.
Then this white car comes up behind us and a big man with a smile gets
out. I canít believe it, but Iíd know that face anywhere. He was Trevor
Linden, the best player on the Canucks team. Wow!
He asked dad if he could help and 2 minutes later we were driving in
Trevor Lindenís new car to Vancouver and he was back with our car
waiting for a tow truck.
The next day I helped dad clean Trevorís car and we drove it to Trevorís
house down by the beach. I got to go in with dad and Trevor said he
would come visit my team sometime.
The next week when I was sitting in the change room of Kerrisdale Arena,
the same big man with a smile on his face came in the door. Trevor
Linden is my hero!
