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
