My musings on a number of things

Datsyuk’s daughter brings tears to his eyes

Datsyuk and his daughter Liza

After Russia won the 2012 IIHF World Championships, a parade was held for the national team in Moscow. 

It was the first World Championship title for the Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk.  Just a couple of months ago he told me during an interview that he had never won anything for his country.  Now that has been accomplished.  Of course the biggest challenge, the Olympics, is still to come for him in two years.  However, winning the Worlds meant a lot to him.  How much?  Well, his daughter Liza explained:

 

This is what she said:

What are you feeling?  About your dad, about the team…

“I am very happy that my dad won.  They are all so great!  They are not just the champions…  I will tell you honestly, I didn’t watch [the final], I was in Germany and I didn’t get a chance to watch.  When I found out the result I was very happy.  We were [in Germany] with the class and then I heard the result and was ‘Yeah! My daddy is winning!’”

 And when we were losing in the semis and the final, you most likely knew about that.  What were you thinking then?  That your dad and the rest of the guys will start pushing forward and will score for sure?

“Yes, I had a feeling my dad can do absolutely anything. He is the greatest dad. The very best!”

And now you have to wish your dad to win the Olympics.

“I want to wish him to win the Olympics.  When dad won, he is now walking around so happy.  He is so happy.  He is so great! So much positive energy.  I don’t even know how to explain it, but he looks so great, he is shining with happiness that he won.”

 Datsyuk was left speechless and teary eyed and can only say “It’s so difficult to talk after what I just heard.”
