It’s Thursday, so you know what that means: a million Throwback Thursday photos! Peter Wilson, Tom Wilson‘s older brother, posted the above photo on Twitter. As you can see, it’s noteworthy for its adorableness. Young Peter is cheering on Tiny Tom after a hockey game, and Tiny Tom appears to have won an even tinier trophy.
It’s sweet, because Peter’s still just as supportive of his brother 15 years or so later.

There comes a time in a teenager’s life where the dream of becoming a star athlete dims and must be replaced. At the age of sixteen, that’s what happened to Toronto native Peter Wilson.
“I really fell in love with writing when I was in grade 11,” Wilson, who played hockey competitively as a kid, explained. “I had a really great literature teacher who took me under her wing and showed me some really cool books. I found writing to be really fun and therapeutic.”
In college, Wilson continued to explore literature and challenge himself, just like he did on the ice with hockey. When his passion shifted away from the ice, Wilson dropped gloves with a new opponent: the competitive field of writing.
