Is It A Good Or Bad Thing When New Jersey Proclaims A Day For You?

Well, New Jersey Devils netminder and future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur is about to find out.

Brodeur, who last season became the League’s winningest netminder, will be honored with a resolution by the New Jersey State Senate in a special ceremony at the State House on Thursday, June 18, at 2 p.m.

Now, which State House are they holding this ceremony at? The strip club in Trenton or the strip club in Newark? I can never remember which one has better dancers.

Ohhhh, the State House, as in where politicians work, right? I get it.

And just so you know, the members of Senate are immensely proud that there will finally be a Martin Brodeur Day in New Jersey.

“On behalf of the entire Senate, we’re proud to honor Marty Brodeur as our ‘adopted son,’ said Senator Richard Codey. “He has kept Devils fans entertained for nearly 20 years and given our state something to be proud of. He’s a first-rate athlete who can now claim the distinction of being in a league of his own.”

You better believe you’re in a league of your own, Martin. Considering there are already 220 Bruce Springsteen Days and 80 Jon Bon Jovi Days in effect in New Jersey, you’re right up there in some pretty elite territory. Did you know they even turned down the opportunity of having a Danny DeVito Day? Crazy, huh. Ray Liotta almost got in, though.
