Litany Of The Union Blue: A Blue Jacket All Saints Day

On this, All Saints Day–a holy day of obligation where we honor all Saints, known and unknown, I give you All Saints Day… Blue Jacket style.

We mention those who have fallen asleep: first the Defensemen, the special teams, coaches, goalies and martyrs (fans), that through their petition and prayers The Lumber Lord would receive our petition…

CBJ nation concisely describes this communion among the Union Blue believers, by which we are connected to our team, and thus to one another:

“As a hockey community among our NHL brethren, we are thus bound closer to Center Ice.  With the solemn vow of firing a cannon or carrying a flag…brings us closer to eternal fandom.”
