I'll just leave this here without comment... because what comment is necessary? Other than Posted Image, of course.

Anyone read the latest interview Pasha had with "Puck Daddy" on Yahoo??? What an incredible person he is...

Brought tears to my eyes...some of you will understand why.

You know I understand, Pat. What a special, wonderful man Pasha is.

He is such a dear man, and so much more than just a hockey player. His dreams for the children remind me SO much of Dominik and what he's done with his money and legacy. Dom started and still supports programs in Buffalo (Hasek's Heroes Foundation, huge success with inner city kids) and in his home town of Pardubice. If Pasha needs help setting it up or running it, he can ask Dom!

They both came from poverty and played their ways to prominence -- and now they want to give back to the place they came from. I cried at the last part where he said the sweetest word in Russian was "mama" and in English, "believe." :crybaby:

What a lovely man. I wish he hadn't run away from me in Nashville. I would have told him so, and that someone in Michigan truly loves him. :wub:

Just popping in as usual to say my quick little "hello" to everyone :) Don't have a chance to get on here as often as I'd like. I always have to check and see if there's new Homer eye candy though. ;)

I'll be in Detroit with my hubby in a little less than 2 weeks, we are getting so excited! 2 Red Wings games and a Tigers game and more importantly some time with some very good friends :) Really looking forward to the trip. And just in case Homer comes up missing all of a sudden it wasn't me....

:sly:

Hope everyone is doing well! <3

Thank you TeeMan for the awesome sig!

Loo, I knew you'd understand. The part that made me cry was when he said he'd love to have one more dinner with his parents. I don't know anyone who has lost parents that doesn't have the same wish. I'd give anything I own to sit down with this guy and just talk to him...but I'd probably either end up clamming up or sounding like a total idiot.

So tell me, what are you and Kristi planning schedule wise??? I need to know!

There was a Puck Daddy article this morning about Dom-- he's looking to play one more year if he gets a good offer. (Meaning they'd actually play him and not just use him for publicity.) It has a very nice picture of Dom smiling, too.

(I know it says he's 99% sure he'd retire if he doesn't get an offer this year. I don't believe it. Posted Image )

aw, thanks!! I love and adore him, and he's got nothing left to prove to anyone, in any league. It's enough they compare every up and coming, athletic goalie to Dom and say, "That was Hasek-like!!" when they do something phenomenal. I don't believe he will play again, and admire his stance of not being used as a marketing ploy by some team. He will either play, 100%, and give his team his all. Or not.

Personally, I hope he retires. Then I hope he fast-tracks to the Hockey Hall of Fame, because I will be there when he's inducted. Even if I am only standing outside cheering for him... I want to be there. If he never retires, I might not live long enough to see him get the honor and induction to the HHOF he more than deserves.

I also would love to be in Buffalo when they retire his number -- which they most definitely should. To me, there is only one #39. Others are pretenders or courting bad kharma. :ph34r:

If I was Dom, I'd go ahead and be the media darling and milk the check. You get to watch games from the best seat in the house and hang with the players. But he's a professional and I'm not. I can see why he wouldn't want to sit and watch.

I'd say he's about as sure of a bet for a first-ballot Hall of Famer as there ever was.

Dom is a first-time, top of the ballot no-brainer for the Hall. It's as certain as Nick or Cheli.

Okay, we now have tickets for the April 1st game. So Dawn, what are your plotting and planning coming up with???

The Wings are gonna win, for sure. :blush: How can they not???

I can do anything I want!!! So Sunday is definitely Hockeytown Cafe and then the game. We can take the people mover or shuttle to the game. Do we know if the game is 4pm for sure? I always worry about those afternoon games having the time changed on us.

As Terry and I are driving down the day of the game, is there any way we could do dinner after the game? My reasoning is that since Terry and I have to be relocated, we need to be there early to get the proper seats - and that means an hour and a half or so early. The shuttle will get us there too late to get taken care of. So rather than mess you all up, we'd rather meet you all after the game at Hockeytown for dinner.

And do we need to make a reservation at Hockeytown??? I'm just wondering if we should.

Either before or after the game would be fine with me. Whatever works best for the rest of the group. :)
