About Mario Lemieux

Your son was obsessed with hockey growing up, and you can’t help but laugh when you think of how excited he was when you gave him that Mario Lemieux hockey card that you purchased from eBay. Your son dragged you to countless Pittsburgh Penguins games to see him play, and he even has a Mario Lemieux signed puck that he won in a contest last season. Lemieux was unquestionably one of the game’s greats, and your son admired his ability to make magic seem possible on the ice. You also remember how your son stood and looked at his Mario Lemieux poster before every one of his own games, because not only was Lemieux a great player, but he was also a great role model for your son. Thanks to the way that Lemieux portrayed himself and how he represented his sport, your son worked diligently, not only in hockey, but in school as well. Now that he’s become a professional hockey player himself, you can’t help but think that Lemieux had to have played a huge role in your son’s success, and it all started with that card that you purchased.
