STAMFORD, Conn. Despite the nice weather Stamford has been having, there was a Storm at Grace Christian School on Friday afternoon.
The students were visited by Storm, the mascot of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers , who was looking to pump them up for Sundays game against the Connecticut Whale. A group of about 50 from the school plans to attend the game at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport.
Storm took a quick tour of the school , meeting all of the students, giving high fives and hugs to many. He also played with the children, throwing passes to the students at gym class and eating cupcakes with the kindergartners. Storm answered many questions from the students, including if his shoe size was 99 yes and if he had always been blue also yes.
The Sound Tigers is the minor-league affiliate of the National Hockey Leagues New York Islanders, and the Whale is the equivalent for the New York Rangers.
