More Bertuzzi Mail

Fortunately, this one doesn't involve suspicious white powder and the story has a happy ending. Greg Douglas (Vancouver Sun) shares it with us:

T.C. Carling, the Canucks director of media relations hadn't heard about it, nor had Debbie Butt, director of community partnerships. But then, it didn't surprise either of them that Todd Bertuzzi would keep this story to himself.

MOJO Radio's Shane Foxman asked his audience earlier this week to relate run-ins - good or bad - that they might have had with with local athletes away from the playing field or hockey arena. Foxman's producer, Stu Walters, put a call through to Foxman from a guy who said his friend - a postman - happened to be in a mall parking lot where a young lady was having trouble starting her car. The postie couldn't figure out the mechanical problem and offered to phone for a tow truck.

Without identifying herself, Julie Bertuzzi said she'd already called her husband and within minutes, he showed up. Todd thanked the postman for being so kind to his wife and asked what he could do in return. The postman said he had a little boy who would love to have Bertuzzi's autograph.

Bertuzzi took down the guy's working address and said he'd be in touch. The next day a rather large package arrived with an autographed number 44 jersey, a signed hockey stick and two tickets to a Canucks game. There wasn't any chance that a 'Return to Sender' sticker would surface on this occasion.
Who said good deeds go unnoticed?
