In Topic: Hossa to have surgery...

23 July 2009 - 08:13 PM

I would believe they are sugar coating the amount of time it will take to get him back in the lineup. From my own experience I had a rotator cuff surgery and it took me 7 months to regain full motion back in my shoulder. I had an extra 4 weeks of rehab too. And now 3 years later I still have problems with stiffness and pain some days. I'm just glad it wasn't my right shoulder or I wouldn't be able to play my favorite sport of softball without issues. But, everyone reacts different to surgeries and i'm not a well honed professional at any sport so I could be off on this one, but shoulders are tough joints to rehab. I hope he gets well soon so I can see him get...KRONWALLED!! hehe.gif

He should just go ahead and get the surgery to fix the problem now, that way he can return in time before the all-star break.

I had my most stressful interview just last month with Detroit Fire. They sit you down in front of interveiw board which consisted of 5 people. The Deputy Commish, Chief and Asst Chief of the dept your interveiwing for, the FD human resources manager and the city HR manager. I was sooo nervous. I found somethings helpful that have been posted already. The big thing is just being yourself, dont try to embelish your past experience and be truthful about everything in your past employment. Dressing nice is a no brainer, looking professional never hurts. And at the end when they ask if you have any questions, ask a question. Think of something about the company that you can ask about even if you already know the answer, ask if you would be able to end up as a manger in time or even a district manager. Employers want good people that are going to be around awhile. Other than my 2 cents, some of the first posts I saw were really good. Good luck.

I have seen a consistant amount of fans at Tigers games since the 2006 season. Before that season I could buy a $5 ticket and sit anywhere in the park because less than 20k were showing up. So to write something like that now is bad timing by about 4 years. If the Tigers make the playoffs Comerica will be sold out every night. We watched 15 years of horrible baseball in Detroit, now that the Tigers are looking like a contender again we get that trash. Who remembers when the Twins were going to be dissolved a few years back? That didn't seem to happen, blink.gif now they are building a new stadium in MN.

I guess those constant chops and pokes the goalies give him, plus the uncalled cross checks to the lumbar area and the acrobatics he does to get a redirect or to avoid the boomer from the blue line take a toll. It would be sad to lose the master of the goalie screen.
