REGINA PATRICA: - I received this e-mail about a year ago: - Patricia Green -

My maternal grandfather was on the board of the Regina Patricia hockey team about 90 years ago. My grandmother was in the hospital giving birth to my Mom while the Patricia were winning an important game. My elated grandfather went out to celebrate the two events while my grandmother slept. They had not had a chance to talk about names yet so my grandmother was very surprised to hear the nurse say in the morning "Patricia is a very beautiful name for a beautiful daughter". My grandfather was so excited and while in a celebratory mood told the team he was naming his daughter after them. I have a little silver cup that was given to her by the team commemorating her birth! My grandmother grew to like the name but it was not a subject you brought up with the two of them!
