Video: Doyle Delivers Season Tickets
'Tis the season. The National Lacrosse League season, that is.
Toronto Rock star Colin Doyle invoked the holiday spirit recently when he hand-delivered season tickets to two families in Ontario -- including one that made the trek to Everett, Wash., last year to support Toronto in the NLL championship game against the Stealth.
Doyle and his daughter Brooklyn hit the road and visited the Loucks and Kluczynski families and handed them their 2011 Rock tickets along with a few special gifts from the lacrosse club.
"It was quite an honor on my behalf to be able to go there and give them their season tickets," Doyle said.
Chris Kluczynski and his wife Christine greeted Colin on the front steps of their Burlington home decked out in Rock gear which they explained was normal Saturday attire for them.
"I've been waiting for these for like the last month and a half," Chris said.
The Loucks family in Oakville are longtime season ticket holders and have made it a family tradition to attend Rock games, not only at home but often on the road, as they did last year for the Champion's Cup final.
"He was a week old for one of the games I brought him to," said Michelle Loucks, referring to one of her son's first experiences at a Rock game.
