When the St. Louis Rams left for California, Gerald, a resident at Heritage Woods of Centralia, started watching St. Louis Blues hockey team.

The St. Louis Blues quickly became one of Gerald’s favorite sports teams. He grew enthralled with the sport and all the action that a hockey game brings.

Once he became a St. Louis Blues hockey fan, his son started surprising him with the latest hockey gear and memorabilia. Gerald’s favorite St. Louis Blues pieces are his fishing hook, his official hockey puck, and the St. Louis Blues Jersey that he proudly wears.

Gerald always hoped one day that his favorite sport team would have the honor of bringing home the Stanley Cup.

This year, that dream finally came true.

Gerald said that St. Louis definitely had a good team this year. He watched the final game of the Stanley Cup series in his apartment with his wife, Kathy. After the St. Louis Blues won, he said that to see something like that was great. Gerald had an opportunity to witness a historic moment for his Blues and all of their fans.
