Since he first arrived in 1910, Westport’s Minuteman has been decorated in many ways.
He’s worn a Santa Claus hat and Easter bunny ears. He’s sported a bra. He’s even been an anti-war protester, with flowers in the barrel of his musket.
But who knew he was a hockey fan?
Today — in honor of the New York Rangers’ Stanley Cup appearance — the Minuteman wields a hockey stick.
Yet his support pales beside another Westporter’s.
A sign on the Minuteman’s fence reads: “In homage to the biggest Ranger fan ever. Scott ‘Hoover’ Wilder. 1954-2008.”
Let’s go Rangers!
