I will fess up. Patrick Roy is my all-time favorite Colorado athlete. He epitomized the competitive fire that excites me about sports. He always found a way to take it to the next level and he played with a spirit and tenacity that was infectious to watch and it energized fans and teammates alike. I miss him. The Avalanche have never been the same since he left. Much like Elway he left a void that is nearly impossible to fill. I only had one concept for this cartoon. Some days are like that and you just feel like it is THE one.
