To say we traveled to Estero, Fla., late last month so Colin could play in a hockey tournament would only be a half-truth. For us, it was a bit of  vacation, too. Rather than sitting at a desk, we hung out around a fire pit. Instead of quick breakfasts, we sat down to full buffets. Colin even did a little bit of hounding.

Trotting out his trademark team sheets (printed out this time, opposed to drawing them), Colin hit up the University of Maine and University of Massachusetts after the squads practiced  before the Florida College Hockey Classic at Germain Arena in Estero:

It was UMaine coach Tim Whitehead who asked to personalize it. Not sure why, but, really, it doesn't matter one bit.

UMass was very accommodating. Each player lined up, waiting his turn to sign the sheet. Once they found out, too, that Colin likes the Bruins, well, that was just the icing on the cake. The guys couldn't believe that a kid in Florida rooted for the B's.
