Denise Watkins and her husband started watching lacrosse in 2004. Like many people, they quickly became fans of the game. Usually, that leads to the purchase of season tickets. In their case, it led to a bigger purchase: the San Jose Stealth. Well, the Stealth have moved twice since those early days in California, first to Everett and now to Langley. But Watkins is still the face of the franchise and very much an involved owner. Steve Ewen has an interesting article in the Vancouver Province that opens with the story of Watkins being one of the first volunteers for a team-building exercise that involved rappelling 100 feet from the ceiling of the arena in Everett. When you talk to players from the Stealth, they mention frequently what a great owner Watkins is. Tonight, she’ll get to enjoy the first game of the new Stealth era at the Langley Events Centre, possibly with one eye on the floor and one eye up in the rafters scouting out the best place to rappel.Stamp is a TV sports announcer and lacrosse lover whose skill set made him a defender but who always dreamed of being a goal-scorer.
