|Modano as a North Star|
Getting back to the ceremony, the Dallas Stars brought back players from the 1999 Stanley Cup Champion team. This would be Modano's only cup, but it was so well deserved. They brought out former coaches, former owners of the Stars, and his family. It was the largest crowd in Dallas for a game this season. Hell, the Stars even brought out NFL Hall of Famers Troy Aikmen and Roger Staubach. Dirk Nowitzki and Ronaldo Blackman were there representing the Dallas Mavericks.
So without further ado, the jersey goes up!
This video is only 2 minutes and it is at the end of the ceremony showing the banner going to the rafters. If you want to watch the entire ceremony here is a link:
This was a great night hockey, especially American hockey. The Dallas Stars did a great job, and showed a boat load of respect for Modano. I encourage you to watch the entire ceremony because it was really well done. Even if you do not like or watch hockey that often, I think you can appreciate the respect that the team has for Mike Modano. I was never a Stars fan, but I always had a great deal of respect for Mike Modano, he was a great player and a total class act.
