  1. Yea we do have family out in GR...I'm not too sure if they really make it out to a lot of games. My grandparents rarely go out that way, the fam usually goes to them. He is turning 85 this July and we are all planning on getting together for a big party! Im glad that you think so highly of him, he is very nice and I'm sure he was very glad to meet you. I am from CT so we go to see him twice a year and go to wings games when we go. When I'm with him he is just Grandpa...but those few times that we go downtown he is treated like a celeb...I sit there while he signs #7 books and the stories I hear brings the biggest smiles to my face. And the stories he tells me are crazy. It makes me really proud to say he is my Grandfather. I am also happy to say that him and Gordie have patched things up as much as they can. Especially since Gordie's wife died...he knew how important she was to the family...and Gordie is, like you said..going downhill quickly. They used to be best friends! Gordie would tuck my Mom into bed sometimes when he was staying over their house...crazy how things got out of hand, but im glad that they have finally talked it out.
  2. I realize this is a long shot but I would like to know who your 'best friend' is...Ted Lindsay is my Grandfather...sooooo that means your best friend is my cousin. WHO?!!!!!!!!!!!!
