Some exciting news just arrived from our friends at Defending the Blue Line.  As if rolling out a spiffy new and improved website earlier this week wasn’t big enough news (Click here to check it out!), they’re also in the running for a pretty big award.  The White House (yeah, that one) has named DTBL one of 20 finalists in a competition to recognize a non-profit organization that supports military families.   As we’ve mentioned a time or two before, Defending the Blue Line’s misson is to ensure that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey.  The Washington Capital’s Matt Hendricks is a big supporter of DTBL, and he’s hoping the DC faithful will rally behind him for this cause.

The competition is being decided by public vote, so head on over HERE , register (really, it only takes a minute) and vote for DTBL.  You can vote once a day, so come back as often as you can and keep the votes rolling in.  Hendy’s Heroes needs you (and you wouldn’t want to let Mr. Hendricks down, would you?)!
