I have to be so circumspect this time...my housemate is a die hard Boston fan. I really have to tread lightly until this is over. Of course, if we win, it will get worse, but I don't care. GO WINGS!!!!
I love the fans in Winnepeg. They call him "Mario's pool boy". He's cornering the market on ****** baggery, that's for sure. Let's put it this way, if we do get them, it's open season - not one player is safe from slamming and Photoshopping the hell out of them. I've seen more diving from them than the loons on the lakes around here. But I love the loons.
Loo, I am recording the game where they inducted Dom. I did the whole game because I didn't know if they talked to him during the game or not. I also don't know if there was a pregame show or not - I only got what Direct TV let me have. So if it's not all of it, I apologize in advance. Hopefully it will be in your hands by the weekend.
Me too. I look at that pic of Patrick and Reuben and my eyes fill with tears. He and I had a cosmic connection. Our birthdays were the same day...he's Patrick and I'm Pat, and his middle name (Campbell) is my maiden name. I told him that the last time I saw him (in GR) and he looked at me and said, "You're kidding." I wasn't. We laughed and he said,"That's weird." But I loved him for it.
Bless you, my friend. I shall miss your smiling face..and dear Reuben too.
Sometimes it takes something like this to bring a problem to the surface. My husband had a stroke at 33 Scared the absolute hell out of both of us. But it showed something that we knew he had, but hadn't been properly diagnosed. They did an EEG (electroencephalogram), and it showed that he has temporal lobe epilepsy. We knew he had the problem but they told us that up until that time, they didn't really know how to read the EEGs to find it (this was the mid-80's, mind you).
Since then, we know that science has vastly improved. By something like this happening now, it might just have saved his life. Hopefully with time to heal, proper medication and care, he can have a long life. May cut his career short, but in the long run that would probably be a small setback. Good luck, Kris - I hate your team with a purple passion, but I wish you well.
I think part of it is because he's captain for his home country. He has a lot more ability to get the point across to his teammates if he can talk to them in their own language. I think that makes a big difference.
