NEWARK, N. Will Grier Womens Jersey .J. -- The New Jersey Devils have dedicated a statue outside Prudential Arena to longtime goaltender Martin Brodeur.The 44-year-old Brodeur was honored prior to the Devils game against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night in a ceremony attended by a few hundred fans on a damp, drizzly night.Brodeur led the Devils to three Stanley Cups and set NHL records for games played (1,266), wins (691) and shutouts (125). The 10-time All-Star won the Vezina Trophy four times during his 21 seasons with the Devils, and?he was a two-time Olympic gold medalist.The Devils unveiled Brodeurs statue in February, when they retired his No. 30 jersey.I feel really fortunate to be able to sit back and enjoy what Ive done and being so successful, Brodeur said before the ceremony. Theres no regret in what Ive accomplished in my career. When you retire and you dont play the game, you kind of understand that you sometimes take things for granted because the day-to-day life with games and travel, you really dont stop to thank people and enjoy yourself as much as you should.Fans at the dedication chanted Martys better! -- a frequent chorus when Brodeur made a big save, especially against Henrik Lundqvist and the rival New York Rangers.The 11-foot bronze statue of the goaltender has a base that includes Brodeurs records, his autograph and the Devils logo.Brodeur is currently the St. Louis Blues assistant general manager. He briefly played for the Blues in the 2014-15 season before retiring. Will Grier Youth Jersey . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position.

Youve heard it all: the stories of Chicago Cubs fans who have been waiting their entire lives to see a title. But if you arent from Chicago, its hard to get a grasp on how not winning it all has affected these people and how the dream of one day winning it, which could be realized Wednesday night, consumes them.All it takes is a stroll around Wrigley Field to see their very short stories, and prayers, written on dedication bricks, which the Cubs started selling in 2006. After renovations at Wrigley, when many such bricks wound up in a landfill, the Cubs redid them this year and placed most of them behind the bleachers on Sheffield Avenue.4 GENERATIONS OF SUFFERING RALPH PEARMANRalph Pearmans father, Ralph Sr., went to the 1907 World Series with his father, Frank. The following year, Ralph Sr. asked his father if he could take him again, to which his father famously replied, Dont worry, the Cubs play in the World Series every year.Those, of course, turned into some fateful words, as the Cubs won in 1908 and never again.The love of the Cubs was passed down from Frank to Ralph Sr. and eventually to Ralph Jr., who became a judge in Paris, Illinois, about 185 miles south of Wrigley Field. The attachment was further fostered by the Cubs having a minor league team in the town.Still burned by the moment in 1908, Ralph Jr.s father wanted to take him to the 1945 World Series, the Cubs most recent Fall Classic before 2016, butt young Ralph was laid up in a back brace after hurting himself playing sports. Christian McCaffrey Youth Jersey. Ralph Pearman Jr. said hes a real Cubs fan and watches every game. His son John (and Johns siblings) bought his father the brick as a Christmas present. Hes a man of few words, but whatever he says is really impactful, John said.Reached Wednesday, Ralph Jr., now 87, said he was really nervous, saying that the brick is an accurate portrayal of my sentiment.John notes that there are now five generations of suffering Pearmans, thanks to Ralph Jr.s grandchildren, but they havent suffered for that long.WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR - ED GUINAN FAN SINCE 1926As has been chronicled plenty, the Cubs have had a long history of not winning title, stretching back to 1908. Not all fans could out live the drought, as was the case with Ed Guinan, born in 1926, who died in the summer of 2009.PETER MASSON IN HEAVEN AND STILL WAITINGPeter Masson, a World War II Navy veteran, loved his Cubs. He died July 21, 2004, at the age of 86.WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT 40 YEARS! JV - 11/11/66We dont know who JV is, but its a safe assumption that the 40 years since 1966 came from the fact that most of the bricks were ordered in 2006. If the Cubs do win it all on Wednesday night, it will be nine days short of 50 years from the date on the brick.
