Will you share Jags with me, Kristi? He was my other Czech boy, and I've loved him forever. Still do.
Of course my biggest love ever is my Dom. He has triumphed, yet again, leading his club in Czech (Pardubice Eaton) to a championship. Yes, he again has won a Cup for his team... setting records along the way, and playing like he doesn't ever look at his driver's license. He is truly ageless.
Half the teams in the NHL wish to Hell they had a goalie half as good as Dom still is at 45 year old. He wound up with a .95% sv and 1.66 goals against.
Those are the numbers he used to put up in the NHL -- 10-12 years ago!!!
I am very proud of Mrs. Hasek's baby boy:
Here he is in 1987 - pissed off because they lost a game by one goal.
Making fun of himself, as usual -- the kid on the tshirt is Dom, at age 15.
I miss him, but I know he's happy where he is... and appreciated!!!
Not every goalie has a statue (complete with gold medal around the neck) over the main door of the arena... this is Buffalo, HSBC Arena:
WINNER, and still champion (of millions of hearts, including mine)...
Love you, Dom!!
