"[Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P.] Arencibia, who grew up a Florida Panthers fan, fondly remembered their remarkable run to the Stanley Cup final in 1996. He kidded that, as a 10-year-old, he developed what became the arm of a major-league catcher by being among those thousands of fans who threw those rubber rats on the ice."

- CBC's Gord Stellick; more on Arencibia's first meeting with The Beezer here
