    I believe he and his dad still attend the home games.

    I read about his story before this season started..... It would be cool if they made him an honorary captain even though that is usually reserved for former ducks. Hopefully he gets a great ovation from the crowd..... Sadly I can't be at the game so I guess I will look like and idiot by clapping in front of my TV.

    The people of Oregon were really wonderful to the Reinhardt family following the injury and the family noted that to the media several times. As much as I dislike knight and the flash, I still like the people up there.

    So much so, that his youngest brother, Matt, played TE for the Ducks. I have never been able to hate the Ducks due to how they treated Ed, his family and the Buff family.

    I was a senior in high school in Oregon when this happened. Was a major outpouring of support for Ed, his family and Colorado.
