U2's Bono The Unexpected Hitchhiker
As a gesture of thanks, Bono gave Brule and his girlfriend backstage passes for the U2 show at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium the following night.
"I like people who play ice hockey – they stop for hitchhikers," Bono told the concert crowd, according to the Associated Press. "I know this from experience. I was hitchhiking in Vancouver yesterday, actually I was! And this guy and his girlfriend picked me up. He was cool, an ice hockey player. His name was Gilbert Brule as it happens. I'm so grateful I've decided I want to be Gilbert Brule." more on this story
