After the Sabbath, at dawn on the second day of the week, Ty Conklin and the other Tyler went to look in the trainer’s room. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Sid came down from heaven and, going to the training room, rolled back the tableĀ and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The trainers were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the players, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Hockey Jesus, who was afflicted. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen and is going ahead of you into Tampa. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
