Sketchabilities {109}

The new sketch over at Sketchabilities is beautiful!  I couldn't resist...  so here's my take! 


Thanks for looking!!


Here's the journaling:
T.J. Oshie (#74) and Vladimir Tarasenko (#91) are teammates on the National Hockey League’s St. Louis Blues.  This year, they both had the honor and privilege to play ice hockey at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia...  Oshie for the U.S.A. and Tarasenko for Russia.  When they played eachother, T.J. had an extraordinary game.  He essentially won the game for the U.S.A. in a shoot-out.  I took this photo (yes, on T.V.!) because it defines TEAMMATE.  They may have been playing for different countries, but the bond they share as Blues teammates is undeniable.  I’m proud of these boys and I’m proud to be a Blues fan!  

Blessings and hugs!
