I am so sorry for your loss, Robo.. and really do appreciate your generosity, in sharing your sister's story with us. I am a big fan of Dan the Man Cleary -- always saw the heart and courage he brought to the ice, even if his aging body wouldn't always cooperate with his will to win.
It warms my little looo heart to know many of you also think of Dan Cleary as a great guy who loves the Wings with his entire being. I am not sure where he fits in the roster today, but hoping the Wings do the right thing for him as a person, no matter what. I have faith that they will do what is best for all concerned.
All true, Karen. You eat ramen out of the pan? j/k
It makes me vaguely uncomfortable for people who are overly obsessed with their dogs. Yes, dogs are cute and good companions, if you're into that sort of thing. It does really annoy me when I hear things like, "You truly don't know love, if you don't own a dog."
Really? I am allergic to most dogs. So I am a terrible, unlovable person. Actually, I can be terrible and unlovable, with or without a fur-bearing critter which sends me to the hospital for epinephrine injections so I can breathe and my eyes don't swell shut. Yes. That spells LOVE to me.
I am a little weirded out by people who proclaim, "Dogs are better than people." No, actually they're not. They're dogs. I like dogs, but perhaps I just know better people than the poor souls who prefer dogs to people?
