Tillman

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Our friend on the Eye on Hockey blog, Brian Stubits, brings us this story of the Phoenix Coyotes goalie Jason LaBarbera and what kind of design he’ll wear on his mask this season. The reason this story is on the Eye on Football blog? Well, in order to honor the American and Canadian armed forces, LaBarbera’s mask will feature images of the late Arizona Cardinals star Pat Tillman.

As Stubits points out, Dave Arrigo -- a sports designer who makes goalie masks on a regular basis -- designed the mask and said this in a statement, “Pat Tillman will live in on in our memories, I hope that this helmet assists with that in whatever facet possible."

As you can see in the photos above, an image of Tillman in his uniform and posing with his brother in military uniforms are mixed with camouflage, stars to represent the American flag and maple leafs to represent the Canadian flag.

It’s a very cool gesture by Arrigo, LaBarbera and the Coyotes, and it’s heartwarming to know that Tillman continues to live on in our memories and in our hearts.

Beew- you understand he joined the military voluntarily right?
I understand that.  I also understand that you are making assumptions based on no fact, since you have yet to provide an accurate one. 

I also understand that the true way to honor a hero such as Pat Tillman (who is a hero of mine, by the way), is to honor what he would have wanted - no attention, no awards, and leave his family in peace.  And if you think that wanting a dead soldier to have his wishes met is the same as a "b!tch fit," then I cannot waste time arguing with you.

Pat loved the military, thats why he joined, to serve w/ his brothers in arms.
If you read the words he spoke, then you wouldn't say he loved the military - in fact, the military was awfully difficult for him to find any solace or satisfaction in.  He had respect for those who served.  But he certainly didn't join to have his image portrayed on a helmet.
