True Heroes at American International College

This story is a bit old but worth posting here because you probably didn't hear about it.

There is a lot of hype in the sports world about "heroic" performances by athletes, but here is a story of two true heroes.

Christopher Bolognino and Matthew Tourville, two hockey players at American International College in Springfield, Mass., didn't plan on being heroes when they crashed at Bolognino's apartment on a Saturday night. When they woke up Sunday morning, however, and returned to Tourville's apartment, they saw that the building was on fire. Both men reacted quickly and saved lives by alerting the sleeping residents and helping them to safety.

Of course, if these players had actually set the building on fire, chances are you may have heard about THAT story. That's why this blog is here.
