It’s a Wednesday night at the Coventry Blaze Skydome. We’re settling down in Crosby’s bar for a meet and greet with our new coach. The bar is fairly full and everyone seems eager to hear what Danny Stewart has to say on his future with the Blaze. The pints are flowing and everyone seems in good spirits as I settle on the floor at the front to listen and capture the words of wisdom and encouragement that he is, without doubt going to heap on us in droves.
Within minutes, everyone is completely enraptured. The quiet and whispered conversations that had been going on have died off and all eyes and ears are on Danny, hanging on his every word.
