I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying
St. Louis Blues fans, this is it, tonight is Game 7 winner takes all. There is one Blues fan that not only will be cheering her team on, but cheering them on in Boston.
Laila Anderson has been a super fan of the St. Louis Blues all her life, even though she's only 11 years old. The St. Louis team has invited Laila to every home game they've been in since the playoff's. Yesterday, Laila got the news that she will be watching "her boys" in Boston. Grab a tissue you're gonna need it.
Laila has been fighting a rare disease, HLH, a systemic inflammatory syndrome that can be fatal. She has shown while fighting this disease that nothing is going to stop her cheering on "her boys." So when her mother told Laila that her doctor gave the OK to travel and see the Blues play in Game 7 she became very emotional.
Laila has been a big part of being an inspiration to the team all season long, so when it came to bringing her to Boston for, what I am sure will be an epic Game 7, there was no question about it.
Hopefully, we will all be singing Gloria tonight!
