I trust everyone got a good night's sleep after that game last night. (Insert rim shot here.)
It's an important day for you ladies in Movember. Do what you will. Just consider this a heads up. For everyone else, remember that Movember is about more than raising money. Of course, you can still donate to the Hockey Wilderness team, and it is certainly not to late to join the team, either. Movember is about raising awareness of men's health. To that end, a reminder that a man dies from prostate cancer every 15.6 minutes.
So many numbers associated with Movember have that shock effect to them. Stats will do that. The only number that matters? One. There is only one of you, and you only need to go in for one annual check up. It's really as simple as that.
