Note the following quotes from Inside Look with Patrick Sharp premiering Wed, Oct. 12 on Comcast SportsNet:
SHARP on being a labeled a troublemaker in his youth:
I wouldnt describe myself (as a troublemaker), but Ive heard it told to me so many times. I know my mom has gotten into a few fights because of me with parents in the neighborhood. They were always sending me home early from kids houses. I had a little bit of a reputation growing up, but I like to think that Ive controlled it by now.
SHARP on life lessons from his parents:
They always wanted to see me having fun. Whatever I was doing -- if I was upset or concerned or unhappy about something -- they tried to step in and help me out the best way they could. I think the biggest thing I can remember my dad telling me is just have no regrets and do things as hard as you can. Don't go through the motions and realize one day that maybe you could've played a little harder. That applied to everything in my life whether it was hockey or sports.
SHARP on the team bond of winning a Stanley Cup:
I think everyone in the organization that year has a special bond with (winning the Cup) and we always will. It's not about individual success, ever. In playoff time, its about wins and losses and you play for the guy beside you.
SHARP on his proudest moment outside of winning a Stanley Cup:
Wearing a letter in the National Hockey League, that means a lot to me -- being named one of the captains of the Chicago Blackhawks. With all the history the organization has, and every time I put my jersey on, I look at it and that jersey means a great deal to me and as far as great memories, there's a lot of them.
SHARP on his heart-throb status:
It's certainly tough being a pro hockey player and then walking into the locker room and seeing those magazines everywhere and taking the abuse from my teammatesI don't know how to handle it, really. Its not like I wake up every morning and tell myself how beautiful I am, you know what I'm saying. It's something that you take in stride and you laugh about it. My mother is certainly proud of it. She's got the magazines framed in her office at home, but I consider myself a hockey player.
SHARP on the journey of his successful NHL career:
I'm happy where I am right now. I know that it's all a process. It's all a journey to get to where you are, but I'm happy now. It was difficult leaving Philadelphia, but look at the situation I'm in now. I'm in the best organization and in the best city in the world, so my job now is to go out and win Stanley Cups. I don't think there are 30 teams in the league that can start every season and say that, but we can say that every year. Our organization gives us the best chance to win, puts us in the best position to win, so I wouldnt really change anything about my life.
